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…
Things i hate
Dead people, Dead people talking, Dead people dying, Dead people walking, Completely burnt people. Scary things dead people say to living people.
Really thrilling movie with one of the best plot twists i have ever seen in a movie.
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…
Loved the movie didn't get the first time. Go into it not knowing anything about it, you'll like it.
This is M. Night Shyamalan's masterpiece- a heartwarming story masquerading as a paranormal thriller, with a twist that will blow your mind.
Apart from the human form thing, very accurate to reality.
Although I saw the plot twist from a mile off, it was revealed in a believable way.
And Toni Colette is always amazing.
I enjoyed this film. I would have enjoyed it more if someone hadn't talked about the ending in front of me.
This is a must watch movie! Probably one of the best M. Night Shyamalan movies I have ever watched thus far. I watched it for the first time today and this is just one of those movies you need to watch again. The fact that the ending made you reflect upon all the scenes again and sort of bring about doubt that it could actually be true shows the true talent of the directing done in this movie. Definitely recommend to anyone who has not seen it before and although it might seem a bit scary do NOT let it deter you from this experience. The next best feeling to watching it the first time is watching it the second time with friends that actually have not watched it at all!
Rewatched this film that I watched as a kid 10 years ago.
Knowing the ending, I was able to appreciate the amazing directing throughout the movie.
The acting was very good, and I love that it isn't just a unintelligent screaming. I wonder what the red symbolism throughout the movie was all about.
Shyamalan's classic tells the tale of Cole (Haley Joel Osment), a boy who can see dead people. He also has other mental issues, which is why he speaks to Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) from time to time. Let me start off by saying that you can clearly see that this is a movie made with a lot of care: the editing is top notch, and the horror element (including good jump scares) really works. Haley Joel Osment gives one of the best child performances ever. However, his counterpart Bruce Willis acts very wooden from time to time. Also, a viewer that pays attention can piece together what's really going on after the prologue and the dialogue scenes with Malcolm that don't include Cole. I figured out what was going on in 15 minutes, and that's a pity because the big pay off is built around the twist. 6.5/10

very carefully made this film's huge twist has been more than spoiled and spoofed but the excellent performances and overall great directing make for a great movie more classy than most will believe.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
