Movie Diary 1/15/2019

Glass (M. Night Shyamalan, 2019). The movie has a cool-creepy final act, where All Is Revealed – but man, it is a long way to get there. I think I like Shyamalan better when he’s working on his standalone ideas, not when he’s universe-building. Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson look unengaged, to say the least, and James McAvoy recycles his Split turn. Impeccably made, as you expect with Shyamalan, but weirdly inert. (full review 1/18)
