I’ve always loved DiCaprio and all of his movies. Well, lately, I’ve been paying more attention to the director as well, so today after I went to visit a dear friend and pick a few thoughtful inspirational movies, I did not hesitate for a second to get this one called Shutter Island.
–Family interrupts again–
I was building up this blog in my head while watching the movie; it started out with reminding me og the old generation like my dad who are judgmental and so affected of their so-called achievements all the time. They think they can control the world and do whatever they want just because they KNOW stuff. As the movie goes on, I kind of got lost, struggling with the idea, is it a fake world? is it a lie we’re all living? who’s right and who’s wrong? why is the truth lost? who can and can’t I trust? friends? colleagues? doctors? people in general? It confused me because I can’t actually tell when others really want to help and when they’re just busy about some personal benefit.
The end of the movie was heartbreaking; Ted was a normal man living a quite ordinary life when something unexpected happened that ended up with him in a psychiatric hospital. I have no words to say other than it’s not worth it at all. All that we fight for. Life can turn on a dime if that’s the right thing to say at such moment.
And please, be reminded to check out the movie’s soundtrack, it’s wonderful.
