Unbreakable

Unbreakable

My one real gripe is that this would greatly benefit by being at least an hour longer. (Feels a tad rushed once David gets to business at the train station.) But holy moly, this is even better than I remember. In addition to Unbreakable's oft-cited attributes (the humble scale, Eduardo Serra's moody blues, its exquisite sadness), it's Shyamalan's attentive camera that struck me most. There are so many shots that start on one actor, hang on them until they finish their line, gradually pan over to the other performer, and then let them reply. It doesn't feel showy or theatrical, but rather an organic movement that allows the characters time to digest and formulate a response.
