Number of Times Seen – 2 (26 Mar 2010 and 20 Nov 2014)
Brief Synopsis – in 1954, A US Marshall travels to an island where the mentally insane are kept in order to investigate the disappearance of one of their patients.
My Take on it – I actually wasnt the biggest fan of this the first time I saw it, but watching it again has given me a better appreciation of it.
I have heard that the book is much better than the movie due to the nature of being able to explain more of the history and mysteries on the page than show them visually on the screen.
The plot twists definitely require more than one viewing to fully grasp and appreciate the storyline and plot. Certain scene made me think I was watching a Christopher Nolan film.
Bottom Line – Very interesting murder/mystery caper that is adapted very well from the source novel. Must be seen more than once to appreciate it properly. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
