Are you familiar with Shyamalans movies? I think he is one of the most interesting writers working in films today. His film credits include The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, and The Village. I think most people liked The Sixth Sense, especially if they were caught by the surprise ending. The other films have been less successful. Perhaps that is because of the slow, deliberate pace with which Shyamalan stories unfold. I thought Unbreakable was a clever story and an excellent film, but most people were bored, thinking the film was too slow. The ending of Unbreakable was very surprising to me. Anyway, I am writing this because last night I saw The Village. Again, the pace of this Shyamalan film was slow and methodical. With an excellent cast, including William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Adrien Brody, and Joaquin Phoenix, the ending was unexpected, but more upbeat than The Sixth Sense or Unbreakable. I do not recommend Shyamalan films to others because I have learned that most people do not care for them. But I like his writing because of the surprises and how he does not bail out with predictable happy endings. He has two movies coming up: Lady in the Water and Life of Pi.
