For those who have not yet experience Mr. Scorsese’s Shutter Island, my advice would be to not read reviews.
There are a myriad of differing points of view, and narrators running through the film, which I found of great interest. Some reviewers found discomfort in that fact.
For one of it’s rare 4k releases, Paramount has given us something special. A bit darker, and gloomier, overall than it’s Blu-ray counterpart, but a glorious effort that works on it’s own, even in projection.
Rich black blacks, beautiful color, and the overall organic feel of film.
On an OLED panel, things get even better.
Absolutely worth one’s time and investment.
Final thought. Where Best Buy charges an additional $5 for a steelbook, Paramount throws it in as part of the package. Current street price is set at $28, and one might expect it to go down from there.
A quality release, all around.
