The Sixth Sense
Not every gift is a blessing.
A psychological thriller about an eight year old boy named Cole Sear who believes he can see into the world of the dead. A child psychologist named Malcolm Crowe comes to Cole to help him deal with his problem, learning that he really can see ghosts of dead people.
Re-watching a film with an ending on this level of highbrow, twisty, never-see-that-coming notability, one can either develop a flat, empty feeling beyond that simple twist that got them so well the first time, or one can find that the film's craftsmanship, symbolism and dense story ends up amounting to far more than what they even thought of the first time. With The Sixth Sense the case is very much the latter. The Sixth Sense is a truly special film, and there's a reason that after putting out many other great films, it remains to be Shyamalan's most fully recognized and appreciated work. It reaches high and penetrates deep. It's not only the most densely layered, and brilliantly constructed cinematic…
Hmmmm, the time that M. Night Shyamalan still made decent pictures; not The Last Airbender (holy shit I hate that film). So we all know what this film is about and if you don’t, you can probably make an accurate guess at the hand of its famous line “I see dead people…” The movie doesn’t exactly blow you away, choosing a very tempered tempo at which to transpire. Not much is going on between the two main stars - the experienced action-star Bruce Willis and the very young Haley Joel Osment - but their chemistry is pretty brilliant. Mostly because the latter manages to out-act his older companion as well as the rest of the cast, including Toni Collette and…
Film #1 of Gustav's M.National Shyamalan-a-thon.
The film which declared the arrival of Night. Sixth Sense single-handedly raised him to stardom and had all of Hollywood raving. The New Week magazine even went the lengths and termed him The Next Spielberg. I just wonder how glad he must have felt, with only his third film, he was being compared to his childhood hero and his reason of getting into films. It must have been an incredibly proud moment and a one he would cherish no matter to what heights life and his films take him to.
This was my third viewing of Shyamalan’s third feature. Any film with a good, powerful, intelligently disguised and a credible twist will without doubt…
It's easy to make this film be about the twist.
Or the fact that there are so many cleverly hidden clues.
Let's not talk about that.
Let's talk about the fact that this is one of the most beautifully constructed and deftly told ghost stories ever made.
I am convinced that Shyamalan is more a storyteller than a director. With this film, which basically put him on the map, he shows that he knows, loves and understands storytelling. It is a shame that along the way, with his later efforts, he seems to have convinced himself that he is a great director as well. It seems that the bigger the budget, the more apparent his flaws become.
This is absolutely…
Hoop-Tober Challenge (For Beginners) Film #26
M. Night Shyamalan before he turns to shit, featuring the only bearable child actor out there.
Wait, I started this wrongly. Please don't assume that I hate this film. It's quite the opposite, really.
The Sixth Sense is doubtlessly an exquisite piece of art, a masterpiece. So delicately crafted. Rich with layers, atmosphere and emotions. Cinematography is slow, smooth, gorgeous, creative, and of course, unique. That's Shyamalan for you, always experimenting with his camera, a truly passionate director. (Correction: was) Oh but how the mighty has fallen! The passion had vanished in his recent works. Perhaps he is trying too hard to impress his audience, and ends up looking like an exhausted fool. What…
“I see dead people. Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead.”
When asked what my favorite films are, M. Night Shyamalan’s psychological thriller The Sixth Sense tops the list for me every time. I know he hasn’t been on a role lately, but that doesn’t stop me from having high expectations for any of his upcoming projects because I was deeply influenced by this film. Even his following movies, Unbreakable and Signs, rank among my favorites, and I went as far as defending his work in The Happening (which is a guilty pleasure of mine). His latest films have disappointed me, but I still…
"They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead."
There was a time when The Sixth Sense was high on my to-see list. It never happened, and then someone spoiled the twist for me, and my ability to watch The Sixth Sense the way it was meant to be watched was demolished. I'm jealous of all the babies being born today who will go through life without The Sixth Sense being spoiled for them, and they can experience it with fresh eyes when they become film nerds and start digging on classic cinema.
Anyway. With the twist having been spoiled for me, I was curious about how compelling The Sixth Sense…
he's dead if you didn't already have it spoiled
literally everything has had a chance to spoil this by now so grow up
In my opinion, a little overrated, but it's still crazy to see the fall M. Night has made.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Definitely creepy, but an interesting story once you get into it. Someone spoiled the ending for me a while back, so it was interesting watching it (this being my first time) from the mindset that the therapist is a ghost as well and he doesn't know it. Don't know if I could handle it again, though...

La media estrella que le falta para 4 creo que se debe a que me spoilearon completamente la película y prácticamente no tuvo sentido para mí. Shit happens... así que sigamos.
Para lo que había escuchado de ella y las críticas que había leído, incluyéndola como un clásico contemporáneo, hizo que me creara unas buenas expectativas sobre esta película. Lamentablemente, no cumplió esas expectativas.
La trama me pareció muy lenta y eso es lo que jugó en contra. Sin embargo, es una trama bastante sustancial, mezcló distintos géneros como terror, drama, thriller, y thriller psicológico. Esto me hace llegar a la duda de las capacidades de dirección. El twist del final fue bueno pero me pareció un poco flojo, me…
Slow pacing movie, and I thought it would be as corny as tons of the horror movies i've watched before. But WOW...could not believe the twist of the story just happened so dramatically with one single action of the leading character. Totally blew my mind and when i thought back what has happened until that point, everything makes perfect sense! One of the best twist in the history.
I wonder if/how the Risperidone someone would have most definitely put this kid on would've affected the seeing of dead people.
The twist is pretty much what you need to know about the movie. It was a good one though but somehow one can see it from a mile away. Haley Joel Osment was good.
