The Village

Okay, I just (finally) saw The Village, and I don't understand what everyone was sniping about. I thought it was brilliant. (Despite having discerned the "twist" literally during the opening scene of the film.)

M. Night Shyamalan's films are parables; they're never about what's happening on the screen, but what lies underneath. One is more beautiful than the next.

If this had been his first film, it would have been declared a triumph. It's unfortunate that The Sixth Sense was so easily mistaken for a simple ghost story.
