The Immediate Rise and Slow Fall of M. Night Shyamalan

Film Thoughts, Videos

This was a series I had been planning for some time. The polarizing opinions of the famed/infamous Indian-American director is just something that demands a closer look. How did a director go from starting¬†from such humble beginnings, to universal praise to such notoriety? Is there any hope for him to come back from this? I sure hope so. But in my curiosity to about him a while back I decided to sit down and watch every major M. Night Shyamalan movie. Here’s my own description of the path he followed with my opinion on each movie. ENJOY
