M. Night Shyamalan United States, 2002

Zac Weber's rating of the film Signs

The atmosphere is buzzing and the audience is often left guessing what will happen next. The rural setting feels familiar but disconcerting, and Joaquin Phoenix and Mel Gibson are great as the two brothers. I would have preferred a more ambiguous ending, but Shyamalan's ability to craft original and approachable films deserves more recognition.
