Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island is a bucket of artisanal popcorn, an expertly made snack of kernels culled from the cobs of Alfred Hitchcock and M. Night Shyamalan. Set in 1954 on an island off Boston, the film follows the investigation of U.S. Marshals Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) into the disappearance of a patient from the fortress hospital for the criminally insane. Atmospherically, this psycho-thriller adapted from Dennis Lehane's 2003 novel makes a case that insanity is catching.

THIS WEEK'S DVD bin holds "Shutter Island" and "From Paris with Love," and it's hard to say which has more crazy people in it. "FPWL" is the work of action maestro Pierre Morel and features John Travolta in scenery-chewing mode as a warped CIA wet-worker who rampages through Paris on his way to disrupt an al Qaeda assassination plot. Morel excels at physical stunts, so it was a bit of a disppointment to see him go the bazooka, blown-up-car route. Morel will give you his side of the story, though, during the director's commentary, among the bountiful special features that also include half a dozen behind-the-scenes extras.

Sure, Mark Ruffalo 's command of the thespian arts is deadly. And he has an undeniable charm. But is the Shutter Island star dangerous ? So dangerous he should be shipped off to Gitmo? Ruffalo tells GQ that the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security has put him on a terror advisory list after he organized screenings of the film GasLand , a documentary about natural-gas drilling. Ruffalo is against the practice because of its possible effects on the water supply. "It's kind of raaadical," Ruffalo, 43, tells the mag about the pic. But is Ruffalo really a wanted, subversive guy, or just hard up for publicity?
