Leonardo DiCaprio became a mental illness expert while researching his new thriller ‘Shutter Island’ – by spending hours watching dark documentaries.
The actor plays a detective trying to solve a missing persons mystery in an asylum in the new Martin Scorsese movie, and decided to study the mentally ill to perfect his role.
But admits he maybe took his homework a little too far: “There was a tremendous amount of research done involving the entrapments of mental illness and the suffering that people go through, so it led me to watch a lot of different documentaries on mental illness.”
“For a few weeks there, it was some of the most hardcore film experiences I’ve ever had. It was like reliving trauma in a way. It was pretty intense.“
And the intensity didn’t stop when filming began.
DiCaprio tells WENN, “We were surrounded by it (mental illness) every day. We were surrounded by dilapidated walls of an old mental institution. We had somebody there who was guiding us through the history of mental illness, the pathways of treating it and the different forms of treatment.“
As dedicated and talented Leo is, I’m sure the movie will be a great success!
Is Christopher Nolan’s Inception going to be a gigantic mindfuck? In a recent interview with the Inquirer (not Enquirer), star Leonardo DiCaprio talked about what it was like working on the film, even though he (and the other cast/crew) didn’t always understand what was going on, even while they were filming:
The material and its complexity are what I’m attracted to…I’ve been lucky to work with people who want to tell stories that hit on different cylinders simultaneously. ‘Shutter Island’ is definitely that. ‘Inception’ is the same. It is Chris delving into dream psychoanalysis and, at the same time, making a high-octane, surreal film that came from his mind. He wrote the entire thing, and it all made sense to him. It didn’t make sense to many of us when we were doing it. We had to do a lot of detective work (laughing) to figure out what the movie was about.
Is there a chance that Inception could be more crazy than Nolan’s Memento? I hope so. Nolan has recently admitted that Inception is “expansive, I suppose you’d say, in four dimensions,” and that it is “the biggest challenge” he’s taken on so far.
The film’s logline is “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.” The rumored plot claims Inception is about entering peoples’ minds/dreams. A technology to do so has been developed and is done through an injection. DiCaprio and his team supposedly work to enter the minds of other characters in order to steal/plant information.
Inception features Leonardo DiCaprio as Jacob, a CEO-type, Marion Cotillard (La Vie en rose, Public Enemies) as his wife, Ellen Page (Juno) as a young college grad student named Ariadne, who is also DiCaprio’s sidekick, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Arthur, an associate working for DiCaprio. Ken Watanabe will play the film’s villain, a man named Saito, who is blackmailing DiCaprio’s character. Tom Hardy (Bronson) plays Eames, a member of DiCaprio’s team. Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, Sunshine) plays Fischer and Michael Caine is also involved. Inception hits theaters on July 16th 2010.
Taking care of his promotional duties, Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted at a photo call for his new film “Shutter Island” in Rome, Italy today (February 8).
The “Catch Me if You Can” stud was joined by director Martin Scorsese as he chatted with the press in the garden at Hotel Hassler in Trinita dei Monti.
In a recent interview, Leo explained that working with Scorsese again has been a blessing, as the veteran director has given him guidance throughout his career.
“He saved me. I was headed down a path of being one kind of actor, and he helped me become another one. The one I wanted to be.”
