The Sixth Sense

Dir: M. Night Shyamalan, 1999 (8.8*)
A chilling and subtle study of the afterlife, as psychologist Bruce Willis meets a young boy, Joel Hayley Osmont in an Oscar-nominated role, who “sees dead people” - Osmont deserved at least a special Oscar, he was believable and carries this film. That’s just the beginning of this creepy film that slowly uncovers its secrets. Like a classic ghost story, the scares come from anticipation and not excess or violence. It’s been said that Shyamalan was trapped under a frozen pond over 20 minutes when a child and survived, and has “seen dead people” ever since, so this could be autobiographical; who knows, he stops interviews when anyone brings this up.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
