The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan is a Sci-Fi Channel documentary which originally aired last July. Filmmaker Shyamalan found success in 1999 with The Sixth Sense, a stylish suspense film he wrote and directed. In the years since, he has followed with three more box office draws for Buena Vista: Unbreakable, Signs, and The Village. His strong directorial style, popularity with moviegoers, ability to sharply divide viewers, and intriguing explorations of spiritual themes all lend to Shyamalan being an interesting subject of a documentary. But despite the intriguing title and reports just weeks before it was broadcast that Shyamalan was moving to block its release, The Buried Secret is neither a groundbreaking exposé nor an interesting look at the world of a filmmaker. It is a silly, mostly fictional and overblown production meant to pique interest in The Village, which would be released in theaters shortly after.

In this elaborately scripted and produced piece, Shyamalan is painted as a reclusive director with lots of personal secrets to uncover. Nathaniel Kahn, whose previous dabbling in the world of nonfiction film (the 2003 feature My Architect: A Son's Journey) earned him an Academy Award nomination plays the unknowing documentarian who wants to delve beyond the pre-arranged interviews Shyamalan's publicist has scheduled. Kahn, convinced that his fellow Philadelphian filmmaker is hiding some spectacular things, makes every effort to connect dots and draw groundbreaking discoveries.

There's a recurring sketch on 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien' in which celebrity guests sit down and reveal phony things about themselves with a whispered voice repeatedly uttering 'SECRETS' after each amusing confession. The Buried Secret should be taken about as seriously as that, though it's played straight-faced a la The Blair Witch Project and rarely produces specific laughs. Anyone who has seen a Shyamalan movie on DVD knows the reality that Shyamalan is all-too-willing to talk about his life and share the movies he made as a child, so from the start, it's hard to imagine anyone with a real interest in filmmaking and Shyamalan getting wrapped up in this documentary and taking it at face value.

From his films' DVDs and to a degree the films themselves, Shyamalan has come across as a director with an ego. While his unusually thought-provoking and mostly clever works do deserve praise, there's something smarmy about him detailing audiences on the clues to his brilliant twists (which sometimes serve to show off rather than advance the films) and the deeper meaning to his stylistic choices. For the most part, it's easy to accept this phenomenon (which seems to amount to a college professor assigning and dissecting his own published works) because the DVD bonus features are insightful and films like The Sixth Sense and Signs are quite interesting. But here, as he seems to cater to and choreograph an over 2-hour documentary on his own mysterious nature, one cannot help but be turned off by his ego. One cannot help but wish he had instead devoted more efforts into making The Village coherent and rewarding rather than promising and disappointing.

The Buried Secret is flimsy and more than a little inane. It seems like a promotional campaign blown dreadfully out of proportion. In spite of some pretty slick production values, the whole film feels amateurish in a way it did not aspire to, thanks mostly to poor acting. With such silly subject matter, it's almost cartoonish how the feature yearns to be taken seriously. This pseudo-documentary is filled with gimmicks, from Ouija boards to a strange childhood drawing of a friend to limousines with tinted windows and no license plates. 'Unapproved Interview' flashes upon the screen with regularity. And there's just enough 'experts' to pass off as authoritative speakers. Tape runouts and audio malfunctions conveniently occur to heighten drama. The film borrows tricks from The Blair Witch Project without the slightest bit of believability, with a focus that fails to engage or compel, and with a message that despite much ado doesn't intrigue or do much of anything.

In his last exchange to Kahn, Shyamalan says, 'No matter what you show, people are going to think it's fake. They're gonna think someone made this all up. That's what this is gonna be in the end - some funny piece of entertainment. And when that's done, they're gonna switch the channel and watch their favorite sitcom. No one's gonna understand why you're doing this. They won't take it seriously. Not one single soul. I mean, think about it. What could you possibly show that they wouldn't think you made up? Have a nice life.'

While it may not be the intended effect, that sound bite struck the lone true chord in The Buried Secret. Scripted and overdramatic, but M. Night got it right.

The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan can be viewed as one 124-minute documentary or as three separate 40-ish minute installments (in one hour blocks with commercials). An overview of each section follows.

'Not All Things are Tricks' (42:28)

Nathaniel Kahn and his crew have trouble getting access to Shyamalan. When he finally gets an interview, publicist Ilana snaps at an unapproved question. The documentary filmmakers proceed to interview those who know or grew up with Shyamalan. A group of kids who spend their time outside the gates of Shyamalan's house reveal that they know that Shyamalan is 'connected with the other side.' One of them takes Kahn into a chat room where he gets freaked out by someone who seems to know where he is and what he is wearing. Among those interviewed are his grade school teachers and a pizza man named Javier who moonlights as a computer tech support.

'Life Would Be Boring Without Secrets, Don't You Think?' (40:43)

Kahn gets his interview with Shyamalan, asking the pre-approved questions. More interviews and some chatroom escapades lead the documentarian to Johnny Depp, who was supposedly considered for Mel Gibson's role in Signs. A talk with Adrien Brody on the set of The Village confirms Depp's comments that anyone working on a Shyamalan film is supposed to use canned responses when asked about 'secrets' (including a George Bernard Shaw quote). Later, Kahn gets to spend a night on the town with the 'mysterious' filmmaker who seems like a pretty normal guy. Still more interviews lead to additional discoveries about Shyamalan, all of which conveniently tie into his movies, which we see Kahn watching in bits.

'What Would It Mean To You?' (40:48)

After two installments of lots of hooey, what better way to end this pseudo-documentary than with more hogwash? When Kahn discovers he won't be able to interview Joaquin Phoenix and the rest of The Village cast, he continues to pry into Shyamalan's history. The crew visits a variety of the filming locations from Shyamalan's works (once again, Wide Awake is disregarded), footage of which is interweaved with clips from the films. They discover that the locations are all within a small radius, and after being stumped, they find the house where Night lived for two years and get a tour from a reluctant real estate agent. The whole piece is supposed to lead to a alleged near-drowning incident that occurred when Shyamalan was 11. When Kahn poses a question about the big 'buried secret' that Shyamalan's films are autobiographical, the director walks out and won't have anything else to do with it. On that bombshell, the film devolves into interviews of people on the street about the supernatural.

God of war full movie download. VIDEO and AUDIO

The Buried Secret is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. While a handheld camera is always employed to give the piece a cinema verite feel, the video never gets as jerky or off-putting as Blair Witch Project. In spite of the documentary's amateurish tone, the filmmakers are clearly professionals and their 16x9 digital video equipment adequately captures the various subjects. Clips from Shyamalan's films are all presented in their original aspect ratio, but they never exhibit DVD-quality sharpness and clarity. Colors are fairly restrained, and blacks are not as they should be. Not like anyone will be deciding to buy or not based on video quality, but this transfer is above broadcast quality, while still exhibiting much of the digital video medium's drawbacks to some degree.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track adequately serves the material. As with any documentary, dialogue makes up a substantial component of the audio presentation, and the recorded exchanges do so here.

In addition, there's a near-ceaseless score which seeks to heighten drama. The active music (in the vein of contemporary drama) was well distributed around the setup, and other than the staged 'audio malfunctions' the track seems suitable and not meriting lots of discussion.

BONUS FEATURES

There are no bonus features, not even sneak peeks for other DVDs. Trailers for Shyamalan's films seem like a no-brainer to include, especially since some of them are not included on the respective DVDs. But they're not here. Nor is any material to let people in on the reality of this elaborate pseudo-documentary might have been interesting. Instead, there's just a basic non-animated 16x9 menu which plays score selections and offers the ability to play any of the three individual installments or the entire documentary in full.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

It seems appropriate that this Sci-Fi Channel pseudo-documentary which was used to promote The Village's theatrical release comes to DVD on the same day as the film for further cross-promotion. A real documentary on the man behind some of the more thought-provoking films of the past six years would probably be interesting. But this is just stupid. The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan might have made a decent supplement to go on a second disc for The Village. On its own with a $30 suggested retail price, there's no way it can merit a recommendation for purchase. Hokey, overlong, and mostly untrue, this doesn't even merit a viewing for anyone who's not a fan of schlock and/or up for overblown, unconvincing fictional documentaries on contemporary suspense film directors.

Manoj Nelliyattu 'M. Night' Shyamalan[1][a] (/ˈʃɑːməlɑːn/SHAH-mə-lahn;[2] born August 6, 1970)[3] is an American filmmaker and actor. He is known for making films with contemporary supernatural plots and twist endings. He was born in Mahé, Puducherry, India, and raised in Penn Valley, Pennsylvania.

He made his directorial debut in 1992 with his first movie Praying with Anger. His second movie was the comedy-drama film Wide Awake (1998). His most well-received films include the supernatural thriller The Sixth Sense (1999), the superhero thriller Unbreakable (2000), the science fiction thriller Signs (2002) and the period-piece thriller The Village (2004). For The Sixth Sense, Shyamalan received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Director and the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Afterward, Shyamalan released a series of poorly received but sometimes financially successful movies, including the dark fantasy Lady in the Water (2006), the eco-thriller The Happening (2008), The Last Airbender (2010) (an adaptation of the animated TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender), and the science fiction film After Earth (2013). Following the financial failure of After Earth, Shyamalan's career was revived with the release of the found footage horror film The Visit (2015) and the psychological thriller Split (2016). His latest film is the superhero thriller Glass (2019), which is the third and final chapter of his Unbreakable film series.

In addition to his directorial work, Shyamalan was a producer for the horror film Devil (2010). He was also instrumental in the creation of the Fox science fiction series Wayward Pines (2015–2016), for which he executive produced and directed the pilot episode. He also appeared in an episode of the series Entourage. Shyamalan was also called in for an uncredited rewrite for the teen filmShe's All That (1998) and also served as a writer for the film Stuart Little (1999).

Shyamalan is also known for filming and setting his films in and outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Most of his commercially successful films were co-produced and released by the Walt Disney Studios' Touchstone and Hollywood film imprints. In 2008, Shyamalan was awarded the Padma Shri by the government of India.[4]

Early life[edit]

Shyamalan was born in Mahé,[5] a town in the Indian Union Territory of Puducherry, surrounded by the state of Kerala. The son of Indian parents,[6] his father, Dr. Nelliyattu C. Shyamalan, is a Malayali neurologist from Mahé and a JIPMER graduate,[7] his mother, Dr. Jayalakshmi, an ethnic Tamil, is an obstetrician and gynecologist.[8]

Shyamalan's parents immigrated to the United States when he was six weeks old. Shyamalan was raised in his hometown of Penn Valley, Pennsylvania. Shyamalan was raised Hindu.[9] He attended the private Roman Catholic grammar schoolWaldron Mercy Academy, followed by the Episcopal Academy, a private Episcopalhigh school located at the time in Merion, Pennsylvania. Shyamalan earned the New York University Merit Scholarship in 1988.[10] Shyamalan is an alumnus of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, in Manhattan,[11] graduating in 1992. It was while studying there that he adopted 'Night' as his second name.[12]

Shyamalan had an early desire to be a filmmaker when he was given a Super 8 camera at a young age. Though his father wanted him to follow in the family practice of medicine, his mother encouraged him to follow his passion.[13] By the time he was seventeen, the Steven Spielberg fan had made forty-five home movies. On each DVD release of his films (beginning with The Sixth Sense and with the exception of Lady in the Water), he has included a scene from one of these childhood movies, which he feels represents his first attempt at the same kind of film.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

for The Happening in 2008.

Shyamalan made his first film, the semi-autobiographical dramaPraying with Anger, while still a student at NYU, using money borrowed from family and friends.[14] He wrote and directed his second movie, Wide Awake. His parents were the film's associate producers. The drama dealt with a ten-year-old Catholic schoolboy (Joseph Cross) who, after the death of his grandfather (Robert Loggia), searches for God. The film's supporting cast included Dana Delany and Denis Leary as the boy's parents, as well as Rosie O'Donnell, Julia Stiles, and Camryn Manheim. Wide Awake was filmed in a school Shyamalan attended as a child[15] and earned 1999 Young Artist Award nominations for Best Drama, and, for Cross, Best Performance.[16] Only in limited release, the film grossed $305,704 in theaters, against a $6 million budget.[17]

That same year Shyamalan co-wrote the screenplay for Stuart Little with Greg Brooker. In 2013, he revealed he was the ghostwriter for the 1999 film She's All That, a teen comedy starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachel Leigh Cook.[18] However, this statement has come into question as the credited screenwriter for the film, R. Lee Fleming Jr., denied Shyamalan's involvement in a now deleted tweet.[19]

Shyamalan gained international recognition when he wrote and directed 1999's The Sixth Sense, which was a commercial success and later nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.

In July 2000, on The Howard Stern Show, Shyamalan said he had met with Steven Spielberg and was in early talks to write the script for the fourth Indiana Jones film. This would have given Shyamalan a chance to work with his longtime idol.[20] After the film fell through, Shyamalan later said it was too 'tricky' to arrange and 'not the right thing' for him to do.[21]

Shyamalan followed The Sixth Sense by writing and directing Unbreakable, released in 2000, which received positive reviews and commercial success.

Shyamalan's name was linked with the 2001 film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, but it conflicted with the production of Unbreakable. In July 2006, while doing press tours for Lady in the Water, Shyamalan had said he was still interested in directing one of the last two Harry Potter films: 'The themes that run through it..the empowering of children, a positive outlook..you name it, it falls in line with my beliefs', Shyamalan said. 'I enjoy the humor in it. When I read the first Harry Potter and was thinking about making it, I had a whole different vibe in my head of it'.[22]

His 2002 film Signs, where he also played Ray Reddy, gained both critical and financial success. His next movie The Village (2004) received mixed reviews from the critics, but turned out to be a financial success.

After the release of The Village in 2004, Shyamalan had been planning a film adaptation of Yann Martel's novel Life of Pi with 20th Century Fox, but later backed out so that he could make Lady in the Water. 'I love that book. I mean, it's basically [the story of] a kid born in the same city as me [Pondicherry, India] — it almost felt predestined', Shyamalan said. 'But I was hesitant because the book has kind of a twist ending. And I was concerned that as soon as you put my name on it, everybody would have a different experience. Whereas if someone else did it, it would be much more satisfying, I think. Expectations, you've got to be aware of them. I'm wishing them all great luck. I hope they make a beautiful movie'.[23]

Released in 2006, Lady in the Water performed worse critically and financially than his previous films. The film The Happening (2008) was a financial success but also received negative reviews. In 2010, he directed The Last Airbender, based on the Nickelodeon TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender. It received extremely negative reviews in the United States and won five Razzie Awards, but it made nearly $320 million internationally at the box office.

In July 2008, it was announced that Shyamalan had partnered with Media Rights Capital to form a production company called Night Chronicles. Shyamalan would produce, but not direct, one film a year for three years.[24] The first of the three films was Devil, a supernatural thriller directed by siblings John and Drew Dowdle. The script was written by Brian Nelson, based on an original idea from Shyamalan.[25] The movie was about a group of people stuck in an elevator with the devil, and starred Chris Messina.[26] The film was not previewed by critics before its release, eventually receiving mixed reviews. Devil was not a blockbuster hit, but has become a commercial success relative to its budget. The next film in the Night Chronicles series will be called Reincarnate. It will be scripted by Chris Sparling and directed by Daniel Stamm.

In 2013, Shyamalan directed the film After Earth, based on a script by Gary Whitta and starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith. It was received poorly by critics, with Rotten Tomatoes giving the film a score of 11% based on 180 reviews.

Shyamalan announced in January 2014 that he would be working again with Bruce Willis on a film titled Labor of Love.[27] By November of that year, Universal had picked up rights to a low-budget movie called The Visit that Shyamalan had shot in secret. The movie went on to become a relative critical and financial success.[28] Universal released the movie on September 11, 2015.[28] In 2016 TNT first announced that Shyamalan would be responsible for a reboot series for Tales from the Crypt. As of June 2017 the series has been cancelled due to a number of legal reasons. In 2017, Shyamalan released the movie Split, which garnered positive reviews and was a huge financial success.

In 2019, he released Glass as a sequel to his previous films Unbreakable and Split. The movie grossed over $240 million worldwide and received mixed reviews from critics.

Controversy[edit]

Sci-Fi Channel hoax[edit]

In 2004, Shyamalan was involved in a media hoax with Sci-Fi Channel, which was eventually uncovered by the press. Sci-Fi claimed in its 'documentary' special The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan, shot on the set of The Village, that as a child, Shyamalan had been dead for nearly a half-hour while drowned in a frozen pond in an accident, and that upon being rescued he had experiences of communicating with spirits, fueling an obsession with the supernatural.

In truth, Shyamalan developed the hoax with Sci-Fi, going so far as having Sci-Fi staffers sign non-disclosure agreements with a $5 million fine attached and requiring Shyamalan's office to formally approve each step. Neither the childhood accident nor a supposed rift with the filmmakers ever occurred. The hoax included a nonexistent Sci-Fi publicist, 'David Westover', whose name appeared on press releases regarding the special. Sci-Fi also fed false news stories to the Associated Press,[29]Zap2It,[30] and the New York Post,[31][32][33] among others.

After an AP reporter confronted Sci-Fi Channel president Bonnie Hammer at a press conference, Hammer admitted the hoax, saying it was part of a guerrilla marketing campaign to generate pre-release publicity for The Village. This prompted Sci-Fi's parent company, NBC Universal, to state that the undertaking was 'not consistent with our policy at NBC. We would never intend to offend the public or the press and we value our relationship with both.'[34]

Plagiarism accusations[edit]

Robert McIlhinney, a Pennsylvanian screenwriter, sued Shyamalan in 2003, alleging similarities between Signs and his unpublished script Lord of the Barrens: The Jersey Devil.[35][36] In 2004, Margaret Peterson Haddix claimed that The Village has numerous similarities to her young adult novel Running Out of Time (1996), prompting discussions with publisher Simon & Schuster about filing a lawsuit.[35][36][37] In response to both allegations, Disney and Shyamalan's production company Blinding Edge issued statements calling the claims 'meritless'.[37]

Orson Scott Card has claimed that many elements of The Sixth Sense were plagiarized from his novel Lost Boys, although he has said that enough had been changed that there was no point in suing.[38]

Personal life[edit]

Shyamalan married Dr. Bhavna Vaswani, a fellow student whom he met at New York University.[39] The couple have three daughters.[40] His production company, Blinding Edge Pictures,[41] is located in Berwyn, Pennsylvania.[42] Blinding Edge has produced The Happening, Lady in the Water, The Village, Signs, Unbreakable, The Last Airbender, After Earth and The Visit. It is run by Shyamalan and Ashwin Rajan.[43] His cousin is actor Ritesh Rajan.

Shyamalan is a season ticket holder of the Philadelphia 76ers.[44]

Critical analysis[edit]

After the release of The Village, Slate's Michael Agger noted that Shyamalan was following 'an uncomfortable pattern' of 'making fragile, sealed-off movies that fell apart when exposed to outside logic.'[45] Shyamalan has also won numerous Golden Raspberry Awards for Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, and Worst Film in 2006 and 2010, while being nominated in 2008 for The Happening and 2013 for After Earth. In 2016 he was also nominated for The Razzie Redeemer Award.[46]

In 2008, Shyamalan said it was a common misperception 'that all [his] movies have twist endings, or that they're all scary. All [his] movies are spiritual and all have an emotional perspective.'[47]

Books[edit]

While working on his film The Happening, Shyamalan developed an interest in improving the delivery of education in American schools. He hired doctoral student James Richardson to do most of the background research and as a result published I Got Schooled: The Unlikely Story of How a Moonlighting Movie Maker Learned the Five Keys to Closing America's Education Gap.[71]
