Mighty Movie Podcast: Shutter Island Press Conference

Posted: Updated:

The embargo on the Shutter Island press conference has lifted, so I'm putting it out for your entertainment and enrichment. However, I believe the embargo on criticism is still in place, so I can't really set this up in the way that I'd like. You're just going to have to wait for the BRAND NEW Cinefantastique Podcast to get my opinion (as well as that of editor Steve Biodrowski) on the film.

Suffice it to say that Shutter Island is Martin Scorsese's latest work, a dark exploration of the human psyche that has Leonardo DiCaprio's 2010-02-10-A14433_310.jpgU.S. Marshal going to the titular island to investigate the disappearance of an inmate from a hospital for the criminally insane. There, he discovers more than a smattering of sinister doings, and a couple of doctors -- played by Ben Kingsley and Max von Sydow -- whose ministrations may or may not figure in the conspiracy. Curiosity piqued? The film opens on February 19th.
