I have never raved about one movie the way I wanted to do with this one. It exceeded my expectations and it really deserved a good applause. For some they would think about the good and exciting twist in the likes of “The Sixth Sense” or the “The Village” but this one my friends I’m telling you is something that you would want to watch over and over again (I do! I do!). I was quite skeptical at first but was very intrigued. Who wouldn’t be? This is an M. Night Shyamalan masterpiece, a writer and director who makes movies not just for the sake of doing it. Don’t expect a mind boggling plot, this movie was supposedly just a bedtime story for Mr. Shyamalan’s children but do expect a little suspense, powerful acting and rich storyline.
I really like the idea of combining different cultures and diversity of each personality, this is what M. Night did wonderfully in the film. The Cove’s tenants displayed very colorful characters and my personal favorites are Young & her Mom, Mr. 13-B, Vick (M. Night’s character) and his sister Anna, the junkies (yeah they’re so blim blam!) and of course Cleveland Heep as portrayed by Paul Giamatti (which I really love on Sideways).
And to my friend Jo, this is one movie that we both loved in a lot of ways. It has been ages since we last saw one that dragged us to have coffee and discuss scenes (apart from your rayuma & arthritis hehehe). You were right, watching it together was a good decision.
So guys if you’re planning to watch something this weekend, watch Lady in the Water.
My salute to Mr. Shyamalan for a job well done!
