That's what happens when you do a mercy invite.
I believed you wanted to invite everyone.
Dad, I can't invite everyone in my art class except for one person without social networking evidence inflicting more pain on that person than was intended. And I'm not a monster.
I'm proud of you. I think.

I think Shyamalan has been abducted by a multiple dissociative disorder guy, because I don't think he could have directed this crap.
How come i can cry on some deep emotional movies, and How come i can feel NOTHING for Split ? How did he make this way to make me not care about any of these characters ? How did he fail that much, in his communication with the spectator ?
The main actor is amazing but it doesn't matter. This is out-of-pace during 2 hours. Irrelevant flashbacks, general lack of rhythm and pacing of the action and emotional scenes.
Actually this movie doesn't split anything, everything is faded the same way into this garbage aesthetic nonsense, so we have no idea whether to be scared or moved, but thats not the worst.
The representation of dissociative disorder is cliché, childish, silly and ridiculous. Does he even know what is he talking about ? Cholesterol, really ? That is bio-lo-gical. Come on.
Let me tell you something. I have known someone with these kinds of sickness. And that movie is a true disrespect to this medical condition. It's pure fantasy. Look it up, idk. Most of time they are NOT aware of their other personalities.
Oh, and the girls and overly sexualized for no reason. pre-teens, laying down, running with no bra, are you kidding me ? is there a narrative justification ? And hunted by a wild beast ? Hell.
I'm done, Jesus. What happened since Signs, sixth sense ? Is that Hollywood business bs ? Seems so.
