Film Critic Quote of the Day

David Edelstein of New York Magazine on the awful-looking "Lady in the Water":

"In the absence of a neurological disorder, a filmmaker who boasts about hearing voices is either scamming the congregation or has come to believe that the universe revolves around him. Given the twerpy messianism of Lady in the Water, itís pretty clear that M. Night Shyamalan regards himself as a sacred vessel. His new movie is like Splash reworked by a grandiose Sunday-school teacher."
Yea, M. Night's self-promotion is getting to be a bit much. Especially the part where he puts out a book the day before the movie's released, all about what a misunderstood genius he is.
