    lol. I dunno why, perhaps poor directing, but his high-concept shit always looks just so risible at times. Just leave the fuckin beach the way you came in? I dunno maybe it's blocked and swimming around isn't an option??

    He really needs help with his dialogue.
    I know writers who use subtext and they're all cowards.

    It looks like they pass out when they try to leave the beach.

    Either way, I anticipate a compelling story idea with overwrought execution and a mid-to-late story twist that feels compelling at first, only to to lead into disappointing results.

    Looks fine. M Night's been more busts at this point for me than success, so I'll only check this out if there's some positive remarks on it. I did like Split though.
