    ★★★★½

    always felt this was one of Shyamalan's most underappreciated works, but as time has gone on and the age of five-superhero-movies-per-year continues to overwhelm, i am becoming more and more convinced that it is his absolute best work.

    "She's the real star of the picture!"

    still incredibly potent in its depiction of love, the film industry, and the way those two can conflict. 

    but that's mostly under the surface. 

    on the surface, everything works just as well, with wonderful cast chemistry, excellent direction, and superb musical numbers which cement its place as one of the finest musicals ever produced for the screen.
