Shutter Island by Martin Scorsese, 2010 (R)

with Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer and Patricia Clarkson (One Day)...

"It's 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He's been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn't been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy's shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals "escape" in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity."

Never had a conversation with people after a movie where it would be said initially "This movie is crap" (I'm exagerating a little), and finally, leaving one another, "This movie is brilliant" (Barely exagerating). It came from a point where we couldn't understand the point of the movie, to the point where there was too many points, where we got so confused in what to think about it, debating for more than an hour, and coming to the conclusion that this whole conversation was the evident consequence of the manipulation that the movie does on you. Bothering.
