Movie Log 🍿 - Old, 2021 - β˜…β˜…β˜…

After only seeing the trailer once a few months ago, I thought I knew the general story going into it. But as in typical M. Night Shyamalan fashion, there were plenty of 🀯 moments β€” especially in the last 10 minutes!

The camera work and filming style were particularly striking. Lots of intimate close-up shots, free-hand shakycam rigs to express panic and chaos, and sweeping landscape shots of the beautiful beaches. A great sound mix as well.

Overall, I’d put this in the middle-to-low section of his filmography. It’s an interesting story full of lots of twists and turns.
