Oh yeah. 

The breadcrumbs are there from the start, and it’s Shyamalan, so you know a twist is coming, but there’s a moment where you think it might just end… that movie would’ve been the most absurdly alienating studio movie in ages and an instant contender for best of this decade. As it stands it’s still fucking great, and even if the last ten minutes labor to create something resembling a conventional ending, the previous 90 are all about reckoning with that which animates all of our culture’s most troubling psychoses, and they do so in often upsetting, always beautiful ways. So, classic Night.
