Not In the Mood For Shyamalan
23 September 2008 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

This brief made for French television documentary takes a look at the work of Australian-born, Hong Kong-based master cinematographer Christopher Doyle. Though the film contains interviews with many co-workers, including Fruit Chan and Wong Kar Wei, and admirers such as Gus Van Sant, it can't help but end flatly as we watch Doyle try his damnedest to make a silk purse out of the sow's ear that was M. Night Shyamalan's Lady In the Water. Shyamalan looks and sounds like an overeager schoolboy, and it's unfortunate that he hogs the final fifteen minutes of this film. As it is, it barely scratches the surface of Doyle's talent and resume, so to spend so much time on this one-trick pony is most unfortunate.
