Lady in the Water

By far, the most beautiful movie of the year. Yes, it's a fact that we live in a cynical world, so when we're told about a bedtime story that features narfs, wolves, eagles and monsters, it's hard not to giggle about it. But M. Night Shyamalan makes us want to believe it. It's true that sometimes he may be almost pushing it too hard (and what is that visible microphone doing at the top of some shots?!?). But in the end that doesn't matter a tiny bit, as he never stops feeding us with his incredible faith, and faith is ultimately what this film is all about. So suspend your creeds and beliefs and let yourself go in the world of this beautiful and powerful fairytale.
