Unbreakable ★★★★

Is fiction basically prophecy in plain sight?

Shyamalan proposes this tantalizing idea in his absorbing follow-up to his runaway '99 hit, a grounded take on the superhero template and a tribute to not only comic book superheroes, but storytelling in general. The craft here is exceptional, even if I did not feel as engaged within the emotional arcs as much as I did with The Sixth Sense, but knowing how perfect that film was, this ain't shabby at all. Similar to that movie, the ending is freaking peak.

This will likely age better as I think about it more. Good capekino.
