Chris' Film Club: Shutter Island

Continuing the theme of picking films set in mental institutions (ok, we've had two in a row) I've plumped for Shutter Island, which came out today in 2010. Directed by Martin Scorsese, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo as detectives investigating the mysterious disappearance of a patient from a creepy mental institution on a remote island. While not up there with the best of Scorsese's work, a mediocre Scorsese film is still better than most.

The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer and Max Von Sydow.
