I love M.Night
5 June 2005 | by cjayne1980See all my reviews

I finally saw "Praying with Anger", I thought that it was great! I had read other reviews before seeing it and they said that he touched on too many issues, But I thought that it all came together rather well. It all had to do with his journey, his feelings toward his roots and and how he grew while in India. I believe M.Night to be very clever, he has a good understanding of what people want to see, He knows what makes a good movie. I also enjoy very much his cameos in his movies, Its his way of being involved in every aspect of his work, He loves what he does and does it very well. I love his work and look forward to his next film "Lady in the water". All in all "Praying with Anger" is a good film. You should see it!! Plus M.Night Shyamalan....CUTE!!
