The Village (2004) – 3.5/5
Very good and suspenseful. Good acting, setting, editing and directing.
There’s not much you can say w/o spoiling things. Joaquin Phoenix as Lucius Hunt was great as was Bryce Dallas Howard as Ivy Walker. M. Night is great at this as in all of his others that I’ve seen.
There’s a few questions about this movie that I have which can probably best be answered w/ “Well, it made the movie work.” like why pick those years and language to emulate? Why use monsters to scare them? Why red or any color at all?
The basis of it all is: Can you hide from tragedy? No. Pain finds you.
