The symbolism of the color red, the odd scenes that made very little sense until the end of the movie and of course, the amazing twist that nobody saw coming. That incredible twist has almost been the director’s undoing. Since 1999, not one of his other movie’s endings have had the same impact, but he continues to try.

In 2000, Mr. Shyamalan hoped that lightening would strike twice with Unbreakable which also starred Bruce Willis.

"A rare animation cell used in the Bob Hoskins classic...film which combined animation with live action to create an outstanding movie. The cell consists of two layers that combine to make a great image, starting with a black and white background shot of Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) with puckered lips which syncs up perfectly with a clear sheet that features a very awkward looking Roger painted on with a smooshed up face and on the receiving end of the kiss!"
