Shutter Island ***1/2

Mark Ruffalo and Leonardo DiCaprio team up as a pair of U.S. Marshals who travel to a secluded island off the coast of Massachusetts to search for an escaped mental patient, uncovering a web of deception along the way as they battle the forces of nature and a prison riot in this Martin Scorsese-helmed period picture. Laeta Kalogridis adapts Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name, with Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures splitting production and distribution duties. Ben Kingsley co-stars as the head of the institution where the patient resided, while Michelle Williams portrays Leonardo DiCaprio's deceased wife, whose memory haunts him during the investigation. Max von Sydow, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Patricia Clarkson, and Jackie Earle Haley round out the supporting cast. That is from

I was surprised to see Max Von Sydow in the movie. I thought he was long retired.

I can describe it, as the movie moves along, then POW!. When you see it, you'll understand.

Max Von Sydow! I thought him dead!

If Jackie Earle Haley is in it, he's probably playing one of the inmates, right? He's one of those kinds of actors that does weird like nobody's business. He has very few pears. He's also starring in a remake of Nightmare On Elm Street, not sure when its going to be released.

As for this movie, I think I've already figured it out, but I won't say anything.

What is the time period of this movie? When is it supposed to take place? I'm thinking somewhere from the thirties to maybe the fifties, right?

Pagan: It takes place in the 1950s.

I shouldn't oversell this movie. You figured it out.

Tony: You said what I was thinking.

I will definitely check out this movie. Thanks for the earlier link to the Academy Award nominees as well.

Belizegial: It is good, not a masterpiece.

Scorcese and Dicapprio are on my boycott list - don't ask.

The movie I REALLY want to see is Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland", and I'm not a good theater-goer - prefer buying the movies when they come out, but nancson and I love Tim Burton.
