Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
If it were any other director, I’d say, “Well, they just gave away the whole movie. Of course Leo’s gonna escape from the island.” But with Scorsese, I’m not so sure.
And it’s not just Scorsese, either. This is based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, who also wrote the books that Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River, which gives me very great hope indeed that the story isn’t merely about guessing the plot, but that even if you do guess the plot, there’s so much more going on that that doesn’t spoil things for you.
Now, the question is, Do I read the novel before I see the movie, or not? Hmmm….
Nice to see Scorsese and Dicaprio working together again.
Shutter Island opens in the U.S. on October 2, and in the U.K. on October 9.
