Spoilers I haven't seen an M. Night Shyamalan movie since "Signs", although I've heard each was worse than the previous ones.
I'm often looking at film from an ethical not moralistic stance. What does a film communicate about right and wrong especially in relationships? All right, full confession right up front: He tells great stories.
I think of him as a campfire narrator. A good entertainer, if not especially deep. I do love his turns in his films. But he builds up a story toward a turn and then slowly finishes it after the turn is made.
