Shutter (Widescreen Unrated Edition)
Shutter (Widescreen Unrated Edition)

Based on a 2004 Thai horror flick, this surprisingly effective Hollywood remake is actually set in Tokyo. That’s where newlywed hubby Joshua Jackson has taken bride Rachael Taylor (Transformers) for an ill-advised honeymoon. They hit a woman standing in the middle of a spooky road, after which all sorts of ghosts seem to emerge from Jackson’s camera (he’s come to Japan for a fashion-photography gig). Can our plucky heroine, a fish out of water in a confusing city, find the answer to this haunted puzzle? Well, yes, but she won’t like what she finds. Shutter is distinguished by director Mayasuki Ochiai’s compositional eye, which favors the empty, creeped-out spaces in which ghosts might dwell. The movie also gets into the phenomenon of “spirit photography,” which suggests that the dear departed make their presence known as white flashes in snapshots. That stuff’s kind of fun; unfortunately, Ochiai’s ear for dialogue is as clunky as his eye is sharp, and Jackson and Taylor are saddled with some truly unfortunate exposition. The actors don’t leave much of an impression either, although Megumi Okina (leading lady of Ju-on: The Grudge) is sufficiently spooky as a woman who will not be ignored. –Robert Horton

Seagull 4A shutter musing.

Seagull 4A shutter musing.
There are notes on this image, please mouse over it to see them.

Above, we have a partially stripped down Seagull shutter mechanism. Shown here with the timing ring/cam in place, but not secured. This is to illustrate the two locations that follow the two cam sections of the timing ring, when you move the shutter speed selection switch, you are in fact rotating the entire ring.

IMHO the weak point in the speed selection (no doubt there are others) is the "selection finger" that follows the bottom cam section. When selecting the speed between 60 and 125 the "finger" is pulled outwards, away from the lens. This action causes resistance against the cam, more so than any where else, this in turn can bend the finger so it doesn’t quite rest in the correct location. This isn’t a problem at all shutter speeds but can result in two or more of the shutter speeds being incorrect. The selection "nipple" on the right hand side is rounded and follows the cam with less resistance so is less likely to be a problem, though in this shutter I found the screws that secure the whole thing to be loose, which is a problem.

Isolette II shutter repair (121 of 365-Project)
When I bought the camera yesterday, I knew the shutter leafs were sticking bad. I ended up only having to take off the rear element. A couple dabs of Ronsonal™ later and it works like new. I also cleaned the entire rear element & the backside of middle element as long as I had it open. Only took me about 30min.

Can’t wait to put a roll of film through it.

Shutter Island [Blu-ray]
Academy Award® winning director Martin Scorsese once again teams up with Leonardo DiCaprio in this spine-chilling thriller that critics say “sizzles with so much suspense that it’s hot to the touch.”** When U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio) arrives at the asylum for the criminally insane on Shutter Island, what starts as a routine investigation quickly takes a sinister turn. As the investigation unfolds and Teddy uncovers more shocking and terrifying truths about the island, he learns there are some places that never let you go. **Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

Martin Scorsese puts Leonardo DiCaprio through the wringer again in Shutter Island, a gothic adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel. Leo’s character, a Federal Marshal named Teddy Daniels, is first seen vomiting and jittery aboard a ferry; he and his new partner (Mark Ruffalo) are being taken across the water to investigate an escape from a prison for the criminally insane, located on a forbidding rock called Shutter Island. From the first, Scorsese treats the place as though it were Skull Island in King Kong, worthy of ominous music cues and portentous camera angles. This might not be an easy assignment for the sweaty, anxious Daniels, who is haunted by his memories of German concentration camps and the loss of his wife (Michelle Williams, appearing in ghostly hallucinations). The audience will likely feel just as unnerved as Daniels, given the destabilizing nature of Robert Richardson’s swooping cinematography and Thelma Schoonmaker’s crazy-making editing scheme (it feels as though fractions of seconds have been removed from the timing of simple conversations, giving the movie a strung-out edginess–it’s like watching Ray Liotta’s cocaine meltdown sequence from GoodFellas for 138 minutes). Ben Kingsley and Max von Sydow are staff psychiatrists, suspiciously eager to talk about lobotomies, and Ted Levine and Patricia Clarkson appear for small but potent turns. Scorsese appears to be “doing a genre picture” here, borrowing happily from influences such as Val Lewton and Samuel Fuller, and the film has a resultingly put-on atmosphere: a great deal of old-dark-house Sturm und Drang whipped up in service of a gimmicky little premise. The fade-out achieves some measure of real eeriness, and the whole shebang is certainly a kicky night out at the movies–if you can shake the sense that a talented filmmaker is working a couple of rungs beneath his level. –Robert Horton
