Signs - August 2002


"Signs" should have been called "Fear." That’s what it is really about, as fear permeates the atmosphere and drives the characters. What would you do if aliens made crop circles in your cornfield? You would fear the unknown. "Signs" is one of the best suspense films in recent memory, but I didn’t completely buy the ending. I will, however, have to see it again.

[2009: Starring Mel Gibson and Joachim Phoenix as future nut jobs. I saw it again four months later at the discount theater and I didn't much care for it. "Signs" showed some, well, signs that director M. Night Shyamalan was on the road to Crazytown, in which he would continue the voyage with "The Village," hit the outskirts of with "The Lady in the Water," and crash into the town square with "The Happening."]
