get down everyone, someone is trying to invoke shyamalan
Any thoughts as to whether there's significance to the motif of child performers in this movie? You have the snobby kid who's in commercials, the school plays, the sick girl performing with hand puppets before a camcorder, and the ghost of Cole's grandma relaying a story of his mother's recital as a little girl. It seems obvious that there's an intent behind it but I'm not really sure why.
I wanna start by saying that had the twist not been spoiled for me countless times before seeing this film, I feel I would have appreciated it significantly more. That being said, I thought the film was good. Not great but good. Willis and Osment are absolutely incredible and the color scheme of this movie is pretty cool. Didn't feel too emotionally involved with any of them and none of it really scared me.
Shyamalan's most accessible film, but not quite his greatest. Beneath the surface, The Sixth Sense is a film about loneliness and the lack of communication between two people at the end of a relationship. The twist is less a gimmick than a metaphor for their situation; the wife is trying to move on, the husband is like a ghost, still living off old memories. A rare Hollywood film that presents bereavement with a serious depth and sensitivity.
setelah nonton ini film,gw sempet ngomong dalem hati:"EH SHYMALAN,KAU STOP TIPU-TIPU YA,SAYA TRADA WAKTU KAU BUAT TIPU2,KAMU INI,FILMNYA KOK AKHIR2 INI JELEK SEKALI,FILM2 KAMU AKHIR2 INI CUMAN NAWARIN TWIST2 YANG SO-S0 DOANG, BIKIN SAYA MUAK SAJA,EH,KALAU SAYA MUAK,SAYA MENGGILA!!
remember when m. night shyamalan wasn't a pretentious douchebag with a hard-on for stupid plot twists? neither do i, but in 1999 he became someone else and did this sweet movie, with a good (but predicatle) twist at the end. now that i think about it, man, we spoiled him. we created a monster.
A nice object in a material and emotional way. Aside from any criticism about acting, practical aspects or ham, it has a sincere warmth in it that shows up in the script and the cast, well chosen faces; and i think the whole thing centres around an early mention of compassion, interesting because it's said compassion in life arises from realising that we're all vulnerable, and we're all going to die.
Just finished re-visiting this film again since it has been year's since my last viewing and I had forgotten how masterfully the film plays out. The story, acting and direction are impeccable and the emotion running through it is truly incredible. I believe that this is a true modern-day cinema masterpiece
