    Thought this one was good. Nothing much to really say about it except I don't think Shyamalan gets enough credit for getting great performances out of child actors? (I don't even know if that's true, this is the first of his movies I've seen since Unbreakable but it sounds right to me)

I don't think I have much new to say that anyone else hasn't already said about it. The thing that weighs on me lately is how many of the most evil people in human history go on to live contented lives and die quietly of old age.

    After World War II, the United States rehabilitated and hired 1,600…
