SHUTTER ISLAND (2010), Directed By Martin Scorsese

A flashy rip-off of a Scorsese homage - as directed by Martin Scorsese. Schoonmaker overload. Use of CGI is marginally better than Jackon's The Lovely Bones. Feels like how Cronenberg is now directing movies that appear made by Cronenberg enthusiasts. DiCaprio really gives it his all: This is his Bad Lieutenant. But from the opening scene you know he's completely bonkers and the twist suggested in the trailers is, in fact, the one and only big twist in the film. Scorsese made a more underwhelming Identity.
