Old ★★★

daughter: that's the rapper, Mid-Sized Sedan!
dad: is his surname Sedan?

Intentionality is always elusive with Shyamalan, but there's a sense of confidence here washing over the extremist vibe (every choice is bold with a capital B) that makes you feel like you're in good hands. It's less concerned with exploring maturity in relation to age, instead wanting to be a B-movie where the substance is the fantastical setting and the enjoyment is derived from the characters being thrust upon it. A ridiculous time, but a good time nonetheless. With that said, a part of me wishes Gaspar Noe had made this movie.
