When the release date of Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island was pushed back, I started to panic a little. Postponing a much-anticipated film is usually not a good sign, particularly since the delay took Shutter Island out of the Oscar running. I entered the theater with managed expectations, and left feeling thoroughly satisfied. Though it's not Scorsese's finest, it's still a solid, engaging film — and the first truly good movie I've seen in 2010.
Don't let the promos fool you: Shutter Island is not a duck-and-cover horror movie. Sure, it has its share of creepy music, suspenseful moments, and harrowing scenes, but you'll be scratching your head more than covering your eyes. The movie is all DiCaprio, as US Marshal Teddy Daniels investigating an escape from Ashecliffe Hospital on Shutter Island (off the coast of Boston) in 1954. Backed by his new partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), Daniels immediately runs into issues with Ashlecliffe's doctors and patients, and becomes convinced that there's a conspiracy hiding in the case. As Teddy grows more obsessed with revealing the truth, the line between sanity and insanity slowly grows blurred.

The stars of Shutter Island gathered in NYC last night for their first American premiere. Michelle Williams and Leonardo DiCaprio joined Martin Scorsese on the red carpet, as they promoted their film that follows in the tradition of mental hospital thrillers. The trio was also together last weekend for a screening in Berlin, and Leo made time afterwards to take his girlfriend Bar Refaeli out in Germany. Leo's talked about working with Martin in Parade and Esquire, and he was happy to speak more about their partnership. "He really gives actors ownership of their characters and almost finds the emotional narrative through the actors that he hires," Leo said. "That's so empowering and it makes you trust yourself as an actor and go places that you maybe, normally wouldn't."

Shutter Island, which hits theaters on Friday, is set on the perpetually creepy grounds of a mental institution, where stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo become trapped. Hollywood has long found drama inside the walls of asylums and mental hospitals — particularly with the denizens found inside. Some amazing performances come of playing a patient, so check out my roundup of some of the most memorable characters who ever checked in.
This Friday marks the long-awaited release of Shutter Island, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese. The purveyor of iconic American films, the legendary director only received his first Oscar a few years ago, but his career has been long and amazing. To celebrate his upcoming movie and the man himself, check out some highlights from the filmmaker's body of work.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Michelle Williams were together on Saturday for a press conference and premiere of their film Shutter Island during the Berlin Film Festival. Michelle arrived in Germany on Friday for their press duties, but Leo's been in Europe for the past week vacationing in Italy and doing other promotion with director Martin Scorsese. Bar Refaeli was with Leo at the start of his trip, but she had to make a quick trip back to the US to launch the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She was able to make it back to Leo's side in time for Valentine's Day, which they celebrated with a special dinner out on the town.

Leonardo DiCaprio suited up this morning in Rome to join Martin Scorsese for a Shutter Island photo call. The duo is kicking off the worldwide promotional tour for the film before it opens here on February 19, a few months later than its original December release date. Leo's back in Europe after spending a few weeks filming Inception in Paris and London last Summer, and just like in 2009 he's also able to fit in some fun. Instead of lounging on yachts and partying with many models, though, he's got his bikini babe Bar Refaeli and his mom along on this trip for more family-friendly activities like exploring the ruins of Pompeii.
