Unbreakable

Unbreakable ★★★★½

So that's why people get so bummed when Shyamalan strikes out! Honestly, I kinda wish this was a bit longer- this glosses over some stuff remarkably quickly, and I think the constant refusal to give in to climax would work even better over a longer runtime... but still, hot damn! A fabulous deconstruction of fan culture and comic book storytelling, with some of the most confidently ostentatious directing this side of De Palma. Real good stuff!
