Shutter Island

I saw this film yesterday and it haunts me still, not because it is a psychological thriller but because of how it questions the essence of what it is to be human and who has the power to define humanity and the human condition.

A friend suggested that I look at it through the lens of Flannery O’Connor. I am still pondering this but after seeing the film, I think it is a valid and rich approach. Watch this space.

'A.D. The Bible Continues' kicks off with a familiar story
'Killing Jesus' is remarkable but doesn't give the whole picture
'Woman in Gold' is a first-rate detective story that unravels a decades-old mystery
2015 Oscar nominees default to (mostly white) men
