Bonus: Shutter Island
Do you remember the scene where a mental hospital patient asks for water during the interrogation? It can be seen that there is nothing in her hand when she is drinking water but one second later she puts an empty glass down onto the table. Many viewers believe that it’s not a mistake and that the director needed this moment to reveal the image to the main character more deeply.
Do you think the episode with the glass of water in Shutter Island was a mistake or did the director do it on purpose? Please share your thoughts about it in the comments!
