    DiCaprio, in his most haunting and emotionally complex performance yet, is the vessel Scorsese uses to lead us through the film’s labyrinth. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Scorsese stuffs the film with heavy-handed art direction and piles on a ludicrously ominous soundtrack. The soundtrack is a constant reminder of the movie's importance and only highlights its unimportance. show more

    Despite its flaws, Shutter Island is worth seeing for the palpably nightmarish and gothic world conceived by Scorsese show more

    The plot twist at the end is that there has been no plot and no movie. For the last 2 hours you have been trying to figure out what\'s going on when nothing has. It\'s all been a madman\'s hallucination. A total waste of time.
