Yesterday, I saw Shutter Island, even if it doesn’t correspond to a unit of our lessons, I want to talk about it.
First the story: In 1954, Teddy Daniels, a marshall of Boston, and his new partner, Chuck Aule, travel to Ashecliff Hospital for the criminally insane. They were investigated for the disapearance of a patien, Rachel Solando who had drowning her three children. Teddy and Chuck will be dragged in a strange plot and they will break the law of Ashecliff Hospital. But all along the story, Teddy turns into insane and he loses his partner… I don’t want to tell you the end, it’s so incredible !
Then my opinion: It’s amazing the way Martin Scorsese shake you. Since the begening until the end you are attrated by the atmosphere and above all, the play of Leonardo DiCaprio. All seems to be a secret or a clue. You are trapped into a vicious circle where everything appear as a lie but also as the truth. The end lets you in a feeling of incomprehension, you don’t realy know if the story is real or not.
It’s definitly one of the best thriller I have seen, I advise you to watch it !
