My new co-worker Katelyn has clued me in on the movie director M. Night Shyamalan. That's right, I have never seen any of his movies - not even The Sixth Sense, but not to worry all of that is about to change. Katelyn loaned me all of his movies that she has in her personal movie library. This afternoon I actually had a couple of quiet hours so I watched my first one - The Village. I loved it.
I am now officially hooked. I must see the rest. I have been scared of these titles because I am a visually sensitive person...if I see disturbing images (especially blood and gore) I can't escape them anymore - they are burned into my memory for quite awhile after viewing. But this one was not gory and it was intriguing - in an Alfred Hitchcock-esque manner. So I am hooked (I love Alfred Hitchcock, anything with an unexpected twist in the end is awesome).
So I will keep you posted, but as of right now consider me a M. Night Shyamalan fan.
