Today I Re-Watched: Shutter Island (Martin Scorsese, 2010)

Shutter Island (dir. Martin Scorsese, 2010)


“[Shutter Island] is a dazzling pastiche of a Hollywood movie of the 1940s and 50s, part Gothic horror in the Val Lewton mode of Bedlam and Isle of the Dead and part noir-thriller in the psychiatric cycle that stretches from Hitchcock’s Spellbound to Samuel Fuller’s Shock Corridor, complete with the obligatory dream sequences, expressionist gestures, throbbing undercurrents of guilt and anxiety and bold narrative twists.” —Philip French
