Back to M. Night being a great story teller. His stories start with a great concept. He uses vivid imagery and captivating cinematography, which only draws you into the characters and dialogue. He develops the story behind the story. I find myself just listening and watching the story unfold instead of working to follow or piecing the story together. When I watch his movies, I don't go to watch a movie; I go to be told a story.
Thus/therefore/hereafter/thereunto/consequently/without further ado, this post's subject line explains it all (and reveals my biases)!!
