In an exclusive interview we spoke with M. Night Shyamalan and his passage in the history of cinema is like few filmmakers: first he broke stone and tried to reach the circuit and the industry through works other than his tastes, but it was with his third movie (The sixth Sense), which literally knocked the ball out of the park with one of the most successful thrillers and ghost stories in history.
With multiple Oscar nominations, Shyamalan thus became one of the directors to watch in the Hollywood industry and achieved a solid streak of successes como The protégé, Signs Y The village, all of them suspense stories, drama that responded to the director’s sensitivity and the rhythm that he was looking for in his films.
However something began to happen for the director who soon found in The end of the ages his first negative reviews from both the public and his fans, but it was with The last airbender, adaptation of the cartoon Avatar, that everything changed and Shyamalan later had difficulty finding projects.
But since he knew that no one would help him, he decided to start from scratch and produce his film The Visit, which step by step would mark his return to the cinema that he always wanted to do, in his own way and with his rules. And so they continued Fragmented Y Glass, that were secretly sequels of The Protected, one of his most acclaimed films and one that was ahead of the superhero genre.
In an interview M. Night Shyamalan tells us about his most recent film, Old, tells us about these storms that happened as a filmmaker, the movies he wants to make and the nightmares that the passage of time causes. Viejos stars the Mexican Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps (The Phantom Thread) and Thomasin McKenzie (JoJo Rabbit and Last Night in Soho).
