Scorsese’s New Film “Shutter Island”

I just watched the trailer for Shutter Island, and it looks promising. From IMDB:

It’s 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He’s been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn’t been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy’s shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals “escape” in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything – his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Shutter Island is a Martin Scorsese film based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Kingsley.

This had better be good because I’ve been a bit disappointed in Scorsese lately due to his support of pedophile Roman Polanski. And although DiCaprio was brilliant in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? , I still haven’t forgiven him since Titanic.

Shutter Island opens in February 2010.

I’m here in Las Vegas with my dear friend Henry Hill, whose story was told in the Scorsese film “Goodfellas”. Henry is in town to promote his book, “Gangsters and Goodfellas”.

Anyhow, we’re in the Green Valley Ranch Casino, and Henry went into the men’s room to take a piss. And he comes out with Craig Vincent, who was in a memorable scene in the movie “Casino”.

Such a coincidence!

By the way, Henry Hill sells his original artork on eBay for cheap! Check out his store.
