Was Shutter Island 'Overlooked'?
Martin Scorsese's gothic psychological thriller Shutter Island grossed $294 million worldwide, remains on the awards-season bubble, and persists at year's end as a divisive critical flashpoint. So why is it among L.A. Times critic Betsy Sharkey's most "overlooked" films of 2010? "Director Martin Scorsese's dark and devious brain tease is as much a conversation as a movie," Sharkey writes. "[...] Instead of tying up loose ends, he keeps unraveling them so by the time he drops the big one, you should be good for hours of post-cinema parsing. See it with a friend." Funny, I thought we all... had? Anyway, I'm curious: Help me help you help her understand. [LAT]
