Did the sun rise from the east or the west today? – Found an interesting article over at Joblo.com. They run a column known as The Black Sheep featuring different takes on films. This time they are taking on The village. Here is their column. Reason it’s interesting, for the majority of the critics bashed Shyamalan’s film. I think this is the film after they all started saying that Shyamalan has lost the touch while in my opinion The Village is one of Shyamalan’s beautiful films. The score, the story, I can go on, but that’s my opinion, but make sure to check out their take on the film. I think they deserve a thank you. And, it looks like we will have a good word about Lady In The Water as well in the future.
M. Night created an environment based on fear and tradition that seems both realistic and terrifying (well, to a point. Not really scary but more eerie). Creating a near alternative world (for three quarters of the movie at least) where monsters ruled the woods and humans lived in fear. Where colors mean something more than a color scheme.
