Shutter Island

I walked into this one with high expectations because I've been seeing trailers for it for awhile. If I'm not mistaken, the release date actually got pushed back at some point.

In any case, this is an excellently uncertain thriller. There are horror elements - creepy setting, creepy people, thunderstorms in graveyards - but I'd say it's really overall more of a neo noir thriller. Great acting, great direction... I enjoyed this one every bit as much as I thought I would even if I did guess some of the punchlines before they got there.
