Shutter Island (Scorsese, 2010)

A US marshal tries to solve the mystery of a disappeared patient on an island asylum when he realizes he is onto something much bigger.

I really loved the film - it might have some flaws but it was very entertaining and it managed to walk that very fine line of not giving the ending away too obviously - some of the hints I caught others completely evaded me. The coded message on the little paper was not too well devised I thought, it could have been replaced with a letter or so from the patient.

I've watched the turn-around scene at the end many times - the transition of Ruffalo and DiCaprio in that very final scene is awesome. Maybe it would have been nice to extend that twist in the story a little bit, but it also works very well that way.
