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…
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…
The Good: So, you all know by now that this is M. Night Shyamalan's masterpiece. You all know how amazing Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment are in this film; how meticulous Tak Fujimoto's camera work is; how James Newton Howard's music manages to be so chilling yet oddly beautiful. You all know the quotes and the scares. You all know how the story goes. You all know the twist. Yeah, I'm sure everyone and their mother have seen this film before. But you know what's the most brilliant thing about The Sixth Sense that…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is part of Gustav's Shyamalan month, where we try to re-evaluate and put in retrospect the director's films and their impact on viewers. So I won't write a typical review of his first film (I would do a lousy job anyway), but instead I will focus on specific scenes or moments. Spoiler heavy, of course.
The Sixth Sense opens with all the main credits on a black background while listening to an arresting piece from James Newton Howard's incredibly beautiful yet terrifying score. He is one of the greatest working composers and his work here is nothing short of spectacular. Whether the viewer has to feel a disquieting sensation or be profoundly moved during the movie, the music is…
Tremenda. Siempre he dicho que una de las que cosas que más me hubieran gustado vivir es haber visto esta película en su época sin conocer su plot twist, quizás el más popular hoy en día de la historia del cine. Y por qué no decirlo, uno de los mejores elaborados de la misma.
Aunque no todo se reduce al giro. Es cierto que sabiéndolo de antemano pierde la gracia pero es que la dirección de Shyamalan es tan sublime que no me molesta. Los actores son la verdadera guinda de este delicioso pastel. El mejor papel de Haley Joel Osment de calle.
I can't describe and my admire to the great idea from MR " M. Night Shyamalan ". The movie was so good not any of it complicated, when you see it seems to you something easier to watch, but in second it will blow your thought in it, great idea and I've enjoying to see it, and truth after the movie ended I gave to the director Hand Clap.
When I see Bruce Willis right now I feel so sorry for him he had talent why he's still wasting his talent in poor movies why Bruce why?!
And the last forgive my bad english!
Shyamalan's masterpiece, and sadly the highest point in his career. A true work of art and one of the most memorable films ever made. Osment's performance is impeccable, elegant and beautiful in its innocence. The story is engaging and the cinematography is gorgeous. The car scene is one of the most emotional scenes in any movie I've ever seen. Even the dialogue, which sounds just about as silly as in any other M. Night movie, works here because of the context. But there's also a subtlety that is missing from Shyamalan's later work. The only way to put it is "graceful."
We all know the twists and turns this movie takes, but I want to offer you a challenge: Watch…
One of the most well-directed films I've ever seen, the Sixth Sense is a film that's unnerving, heartwarming, and beautiful, with incredible performances by Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, and Toni Collette just putting the icing on the cake.
"The Sixth Sense" is a genuinely creepy, amazing acted, and perfectly written movie. Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment have great chemistry, and there are some terrific scenes. But it wasn't perfectly paced, and the twist ending wasn't as surprising as I was hoping it would be (people will give me death threats for saying that, but I sort of predicted it). But overall, "The Sixth Sense" is a great movie with fantastic performances.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
HOW DO PEOPLE NOT SEE THE TWIST? I called that!
Its right in your face but you don't see it. Awesome.
Cole Sear: I see dead people.
Malcolm Crowe: In your dreams?
[Cole shakes his head no]
Malcolm Crowe: While you're awake?
Malcolm Crowe: Dead people like, in graves? In coffins?
Cole Sear: 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.
Malcolm Crowe: How often do you see them?
Cole Sear: All the time. They're everywhere.
God, I hate spoilers .
When I watched this it was already spoiled for me by multiple movies.
But even though I know the plot twist of this movie, I still enjoyed and got scared by the movie. It's a nice movie that can still hold up even…
