Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Split (2016)

Directed by M. Night Shyamalan

Starring James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu Richardson


Definitely Shyamalan, with it’s suspense, minimalist editing, flashbacks to establish character, a touch of the supernatural, and a twist at the end. Some of his dialogue can seem a little scripted, though.

McAvoy is great as a loony. Taylor-Joy’s pretty good, though perhaps a few too many shots of her wide-eyed and looking scared.
