Shutter Island

The Others

“You know, this place makes me wonder. Which would be worse, to live as a monster or to die as a good man?”

As a twisted person with a twisted mind, I think that the twist of Shutter Island (2010-Leonardo Dicaprio) is not as twisted as the twist of The Others (2001-Nicole Kidman). They are somehow similar, that is why I have the hunch of this twist before the movie really reveal the twist. But I have to say that it was a nice try. I know that it’s not easy to make something so bewildering like that.

I quoted Teddy Daniels last line from the movie, because I think it was what the movie really want to present. Out of the sanity showed in the movie, Andrew Laeddis was and is the one who really owns sanity. That is when he chooses to die as a good man rather to live as a monster.

We too should try to make such decision, to die as a good man rather to live as a monster.
