‘Shutter Island’ trailer

Posted by · 5:58 pm · June 10th, 2009

Even though the thriller throttle is wide open, the moody atmospherics of this just-released trailer for Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island” had me from frame one. DiCaprio looks in confident control, everything in stride these days. Kingsley conveys subtle sinister panache with the best of them. Haley is having the time of his life, taking the bull by the horns. And how can Bob Richardson be at the top of his game each and every time he turns his light meter on?

This one just shot to the top as must-see. Now. Give it to me ASAP.

See it in HD at Apple.

    Haha, that’s slightly cheating, Kris. But y’all can have it :)

    Gosling is good, Rhys Meyers can be good. I don’t see either one being any better than DiCaprio, though. I think Meyers in particular is limited as an actor. That’s my opinion but I’ve never warmed to him and, indeed, he does not play warm. And warmth is essential to finding a real substantive place in the heart of an audience. I also have similar feelings towards Christian Bale, fine actor that he is. I’ve never warmed to him, either. His performances always seem a bit too clinical. There is a reason why he was completely overshadowed by Heath Ledger in the Dark Knight and I don’t mean Ledger’s unfortunate demise. Additionally, I don’t see anything wrong with actors who are “movie stars”. There is a huge reason why they are stars. DiCaprio, like the real Brando, is actor and movie star. That’s a fearsome combo and I’d argue that Brando might not have been the best fit for some of his roles — Teahouse of the August Moon comes to mind among others, but so what? This will always be a problematic thing. You can accept it, get over your personal bias, and enjoy whatever works in the performance or you can abhor it and get into a huff over it if you think there is some other more worthy person who should have done it. Most actors will tell you that the things that come into play when it comes to getting a role, perfect or not, are often determined by luck, fortitude, and sometimes talent. Stardom only goes so far.

    Just finished the novel. It was great!
    I stayed away from the comments here because I was afraid of spoilers. I think it will be a great movie.

    PS: Guy, I’m glad someone else noticed that Kate was great in Romance and Cigarettes. I know we have a disagreement on the Hanna perf but so what?
