Why to Watch - Shutter Island

This film somehow gets better the more you watch it. This is a mind melter and features a Rex favorite and close personal friend, Mark Ruffalo.

Director: Martin ScorseseWriter: Laeta Kalogridis, Dennis LehaneStars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, Mark RuffaloSummary: In 1954, up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He's been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he thinks he's been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy's shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals "escape" in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity. —alfiehitchie
