The book is how the story was meant to be told. The ending to the movie cheapened part of that. He was crazy.

Actually this is the kind of movie you have to see a few times. Just to see the subtle things the actors do, and try and find giveaways. Like The 6th sense, when you try to figure out if there was any parts it was obvious Bruce Willis is really dead.

I never watched the trailer. And the commercials never implied that he was insane. It's whatever though I'll still probably watch it eventually.

This thread should be deleted or, at the very least, modified. What the hell, Dooms? That's a real d!ckhead move.

anyone notice the striking similarity to the plot line and ultimate twist of Nolan's masterpiece "Memento"?

By the way, I still think the ending can be taken in many ways. He could be faking it, he could be suicidal, he could have relapsed. I just can't rule out the possibility of a conspiracy. The doctors had the resources, including the knowledge of the human psyche - the real "Shutter Island" - and how truth is only what is percieved to be true. So those saying "100% wrong" and "he was obviously crazy" should chill on those remarks unless they are commenting on their own book

Okay God Dammit... I f*cked up.

I still think judging by the trailer it should of been obvious to anybody.






When you see something like that in the trailer.... I think a few of your brain cells should click together and maybe you would ask yourself... "Oh it looks like the character Leo plays could be crazy?"

Nope... I don't care what they said.

I think Scorsese is secretly getting the last laugh on the audience because he knows damn well the movie can be seen from the "conspiracy" point of view... which is why the movie is a masterpiece.

Besides that... there are certain things about the film that don't make sense if there wasn't a conspiracy.

Why did Dr. Crawly say the line: "Why are you all wet baby?"

Quote:
18. Notice when Teddy walks into the lighthouse Dr. Cawley says "why are you all wet Baby". This I believe is another trigger, the trigger that pushes Teddy over the edge. Notice this is the exact line Teddy says to his wife in his final vision - the vision where he believes he sees his wife has killed his three kids.

It just doesn't make sense why the doctor would say that.
