Not Prince Hamlet

"Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse."

Aint It Cool News on "Lady . . ."

"You see, this is a film that asks you to not believe in the here and now. To not step foot in reality, but to step into a writer’s hands and just let him tell you a story, where he’s making it up as he goes along and where logic has little to no place. Where you can have a character with one gigantic muscled side of his body and tells everyone that he likes being scientific. It’s goofy like that. It’s innocent.

"If you can’t just go with the story, you’ll find yourself trapped in what some will call the most pretentious ego-trip ever committed to film. The people that hate this film will compare it to the biggest disasters ever made."

Exactly. Which is why NPH can handle it. Let M. Night tell you a story, and try not to notice the sound of his thoughts. Because if you do, you won't hear anything else. And that would be sad.

Personally, not a fan per se of M. Night. Don't dislike his movies, but I don't go out of my way to see them unless they look particularly intriguing.

But I found this article I thought you might like. Plus, it has an awesome title:

Call It Shyamaladenfreude

Just thought I'd pass it along.
