I am a huge M. Night Shyamalan fan. From Sixth Sense to Lady in the Water, I really connected and felt at home with much of what he embodied and all his films had to offer. Then came The Happening. Enough said I guess.
Since his public demise and spiral downfall of quality in filmmaking, I have searched the interwebs to find some fair piece of writing to make sense of Night’s recent career. I found this article on Venture and while I don’t read a lot of their stuff, this particular writer makes a fair case for Night. It doesn’t glorify him like his blinded fans and it refuses to just say “he sucks” which is what most people will say of Shyamalan nowadays. I think he brings up some great stuff on Shyamalan’s faulty perception of himself.
