It’s Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s fourth film together,which officially makes them Hollywood’s hottest couple after Brad ‘n’ Angie. But Shutter Island is not just exciting because of that; it’s also shaping up to be something of a stylistic shift for Scorsese. And here’s a shot of Scorsese directing DiCaprio (as Teddy Daniels) and Michelle Williams as his wife.
Co-star Mark Ruffalo, who plays a US marshal alongside DiCaprio, said, “This could be one of [Scorsese’s] great films. He gets to do everything he loves about film: noir, dream sequences, suspense, tough urban stuff. It’s absolute madness, twist upon twist.”
Scorsese himself has likened the film to Orson Welles’ take on Kafka’s The Trial, or Hitchcock at his weirdest, which sounds pretty darn promising to us. The film’s out on October 9 in the UK and October 2 in the US. Next year’s Oscar race starts here.
