    ★★★½

    Probably the least subtle Shyamalan movie, which is fine by me (if people miss the themes on this run, I'm going to be depressed). Aging is on display, but so is time in general, the universal treatment of ongoing medical conditions, romance both young and old, time being inescapable, and a small but damning jab at something spoilery.

    It's been a long time since I've seen a director succeed in showing their creation without any kind of interference. A movie I felt was right off the mind of Robert Eggers, with the only filter being that it could be something that somebody could comprehend.

    It is almost impossible to go into this movie hard without spoilers. If you're still reading this despite the obvious spoiler warning, I recommend this movie. It's an extremely interesting psychological thriller filled with…
