The Sixth Sense (1999)
Malcolm: Do you know what "Yo no quiero morir"
means? It's Spanish. It means "I don't want to die."
What do you think these ghosts want when they talk
to you? I want you to think about it, Cole.
I want you to think about it really carefully.
Cole: Just help.
Malcolm: That's right. That's what I think too.
They just want help, even the scary ones.
I think I might know a way to make them go away.
Malcolm: Listen to them.
Cole: What if they don't want help? What if they're
just angry and they just want to hurt somebody?
Malcolm: I don't think that's the way it works.
Cole: How do you know for sure?
M. Night Shyamalan's now classic ghost story came out twenty years ago today. I thought the film was overrated for a very long time (besides Toni Collette's astonishing work of course -- that could never be overrated) but I've come to terms with its canonical place by now. I still think Signs is Shyamalan's best film (Mel Gibson be damned) but I'd rank this as his second best, I think. Where do you all stand on The Sixth Sense?
