The Village

The Village ★★★★½

This dude is one of the few filmmakers that really understands how I feel emotions, even in absolute misery and horror there's the elevation and light around us that will carry us to the next destination. There are multiple scenes in this where characters confide in each other and speak of each other's desperation so earnestly, without compromise or second glance. Everyone is together but also drifting apart all at once. This is an attack on oppressive societies as much a celebration of the communal beauty of them. It feels so liberating to have a piece of art where I feel truly spoken to and understood, Shyamalan creates movies for specific people and those who identify with it will cherish it forever.
