Shutter Island (2010)

This is a dark, mysterious thriller in which Teddy Daniels, perfectly portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio, along with his partner Chuck Aule, characterized by Mark Ruffalo, investigates the puzzling disappearance of Rachel Solando from the Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane, also known as Shutter Island. Both the novel by Dennis Lehane and the film adaptation by Martin Scorsese are equally superb. Scorsese is a master at keeping the audience glued to their seats, absorbed into the engrossing plot and chilled by the various frightening scenes hurtling at them. Despite its somewhat disturbing theme, Shutter Island has the rewatchability factor. Ironically, the movie’s title is an anagram for "Denials Truths."
