Lady in the Water

I loved this film. I'm a little beside myself as to why everyone's bashing it the way they are. Yes, the story is pretty out there and kind of ridiculous, but it didn't matter to me. Just like all of the tenants in the complex, I let all of the implausibilities fly out the window and went along for the ride. Mark and I had a long discussion about it and he can probably explain it better than me, but it's the first film that Shyamalan let his heart ripple onto the page. It's not about the twist or the camera movement or trying to be a great filmmaker, it's about a love for humanity, community and hope.
