20:10 Strangely Timed Vacation

Three years ago at the original blog, I created a series called 20:07 which became one of the most popular TFE features ever and spawned a slew of imitators 'round the web. Just for fun, let's resurrect that ol' champ for the remainder of Oscar season as we finish celebrating the films of 2010 so that a new film year can spring forth.

Screen capture: 20th minute and 10th second of Shutter Island

Chuck Aule: You're in a state of lockdown, a dangerous patient has escaped and you let her primary doctor leave? On vacation?

I love that Leonardo's expression is so play-acting at detective work. Like 'I might write down a clue at this very moment. I just might. I'm a detective!'  Isn't that perfect?

But about that doctor. Do you have the phone number for where he's gone? Do you have this film's number? (I'm guessing 2 as in Cinematography and Art Direction. Not that I need every conversation to be about Oscar.)
