Saturday night, I watched Shutter Island, and I was displeased. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of getting the annoyance out of my system before I had the chance to blog it, and now I’ve stopped caring, so I’ll just say this: it has the worst musical score I’ve ever heard in a studio film. Worse than The Princess Bride!
To temper my disappointment, I decided to order used copies of The King of Comedy and Raging Bull—the only two Martin Scorsese films I really like—as part of a bizarre, possibly obsessive-compulsive quest to create the ultimate movie collection. (Please note: the ultimate movie collection is a deeply personal pursuit involving numerous factors. My collection won’t be like yours. There are a lot of rules.) That’s about all I have to say on the subject.
