    Signs 2002

    ★★★ Watched 01 Dec, 2015

    More should be said about the humour in this film.. The dialogue and acting was really quite witty and off-beat (nicely enhanced by the cinematography and editing). I was a little taken aback by the switch from this to a more serious ending about two thirds into the film, feeling that this change made the film feel disjointed. Quite fun overall.

    Good old fashion action-fantasy Bond picture. Nothing more or less.

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
