Personal Quote:

When we made The Sixth Sense (1999) in 1999, every film had an original film-maker with an original point of view - American Beauty (1999), Being John Malkovich (1999), The Matrix (1999), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Magnolia (1999). Clearly that's not the case today. See more »

Trivia:

His three supernatural thrillers, The Sixth Sense (1999), Unbreakable (2000), and Signs (2002), grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide. See more »

Trademark:

Lengthy, uncut, immovable shot of two people talking. Usually the two characters are standing a distance from the camera. See more »
