Framing in Shyamalan’s “Unbreakable”

Jim Emerson posted this 8-minute clip of some scenes to M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable with descriptive subtitles.

Although I don’t love it, Unbreakable is a movie I keep coming back to every few years because what is done well in the movie is done very well. M. Night Shyamalan is a skilled filmmaker who seems to have caught the George Lucas virus where nobody working for him has the guts to tell him that he’s making a crappy movie. Maybe there’s a pill he can take for that.
