I just need some time
I loved this, I found it to be a truly unpredictable and unsettling ride. I think deep down we're all afraid of ageing. It's an uncontrollable part of life. M Night Shyamalan understands how to take that to the extreme and make it terrifying, disturbing and heartbreaking. Some of the imagery will be burned into my brain forever.
His unconventional dialogue and directing style really add to the overall unsettling vibe of the film, from the beginning you know everything is not as it seems. I just wish he didn't feel the need to explain everything at the end, why couldn't it have just been a magical beach!?
It's wild that M Night still manages to convince studios to go along with his crazy ideas, it's awesome that films like this can still get a wide release. There's nothing else like this out right now!
