Top of the month February 2010: Shutter Island
Madness…? This is Ashecliffe!
Why should you go see Shutter Island by Martin Scorsese, right now?
– Because of the sound of the double bass that follows the main characters from the fog to the gates of the detention facility.
– Because it’s not only a film noir homage but a highly elaborate graphic universe.
– Because the island of Doctor Scorsese is more than a set, a character on its own (Lost anyone?).
Runners up :Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson and I Love You Phillip Morris by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa.
(not to mention Brothers by Jim Sheridan, Lovely Bones by Peter Jackson and Sherlock Holmes by Guy Ritchie)
