Shutter Island and Inception... Beautifully Complimentary

Shutter Island Tag Line: "I wonder... is it better to live as a monster or die as a good man?" 

Inception Tag Line: Your world isn't real; doubt what is reality. 

Ending of Shutter Island: DiCaprio is caused to doubt whether his world is real, and he dies a dillusional good man (because he can't accept the reality that he killed his wife).

Ending of Inception: DiCaprio DOESN'T doubt what is real (regardless what we think), he believes he is in reality with his kids -- and he lives as a monster that killed his wife, but he accepts that fact.
