absolute hack filmmaker
Maybe Shyamalan's best? On par with Lynch, this is a nightmarish rendering of the America of the aughts. Maybe he got too close to our fears, but the way that people are unable to distinguish media-sold "terrorism" from the actual apocalyptic consequences of climate change is prescient. The model home is maybe the crux of what unlocks this movie. We're so keen on destroying nature in order to build monuments to ourselves. The synthetic meets the organic.
18 months ago, I read the book How to Blow Up a Pipeline and today, I got to see the movie fully finished. I was so lucky to collaborate with the world's most incredible, hard-working team, and I'm so proud of what we made. It's everything I hoped it would be and more. Will have more to write after we premiere.
