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.
