I did go to another movie this week and this time I saw "Shutter Island". I had read the book, so the movie was a little anti-climactic.
Since I already knew the story line, I simply enjoyed the scenes.
Everybody keeps saying how they felt that this movie finally "got it right" in presenting the mentally ill, but I don't agree. I know that in the '50s there was not much in the way of mental health treatment to be found, but I certainly don't think that patients were sent off to live on an island because of their illness.
My sister said last night that we certainly have been seeing alot of movies lately and I have to say she is right. We have. I don't know why, but it seems to be the thing to do right now.
