TheMoviePool.com takes a close look at the top two psychological thrillers of the year and explains why Inception has blown Shutter Island out of the water.
Wow, what an interesting take on both of those films (and it's just kind of funny that they both star DiCaprio). I wasn't totally disappointed in Shutter Island, but the book is far better than the adaptation tried to be.
When you think about it, both films are so alike. I would go deeper into it, but spoilers and all :)
Inception seems to have captured the same feeling Nolan did with Memento, X10 of course.
I actually liked Shutter Island, but I'm sure the book is better.. That's usually the case. I haven't seen Inception yet, but hopefully soon.
I liked Shutter Island too. I'm sure you can't tell from the article but I'm a huge fan of Scorsese and was looking forward to that movie for over a year. It didn't live up to the expectations I had for it but that could be my fault too.
Interestingly enough, I enjoyed Shutter Island more than Inception simply for the character drama. While both films were excellent, I have to say that SI played more to the mind and emotion than Inception, where the effects and action took center stage.
