From my Facebook invite:
Many would say it all started going downhill for M. Night Shyamalan at THE VILLAGE. Many would say it had been going downhill all along. But for me, LADY IN THE WATER is when this Philadelphian cinematic visionary started leaving basic logic behind and reached a new stratosphere of WTF?! storytelling (to reach even steeper heights in THE HAPPENING).
Please join us for this very special "Misunderstood Gems" event, in which I, Michael Tully, will preface things by reading from THE MAN WHO HEARD VOICES: OR HOW M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN RISKED HIS CAREER ON A FAIRY TALE to provide even more mind-blowing perspective on what we are about to watch. I will also have Squizzle bottles filled with Mike's Hard Lemonade to help spice up the proceedings.
Lest you think this is all some sort of April Fool's Day prank and assume that in reality we'll be watching something else, you will be thinking and assuming wrong. There has never been a more appropriate April Fool's Day film than M. Night Shyamalan's LADY IN THE WATER. It's even more appropriate than APRIL FOOL'S DAY!
Thursday, April 1st, 8pm, 92YTribeca. Get your tickets here.
