A sample of reviews from critics across the country.
Not since "Raging Bull" has Mr. Scorsese so brazenly married brutality to beauty. Not since "Kundun" has one of his films felt so aspirational.

Shutter Island holds you, but it doesn't grip you. It's as if Scorsese had put his filmmaking fever on psychotropic drugs.
It's a pleasure to experience Scorsese as a circus master. One just hopes he doesn't continue in this vein.
Despite its flaws, Shutter Island is worth seeing for the palpably nightmarish and gothic world conceived by Scorsese
