Director - M. Night Shyamalan
Genre - Fantasy/Mystery/Thriller
The lady should have just remained in the water. Then we wouldn't have had to watch this pretentious, ego-stroking movie. And if Shyamalan (casting himself in a substantial part) can act then Quentin Tarantino deserves a Best Actor Oscar. Paul Giamatti plays a droll maintenance guy who discovers a water nymph emerging from the pool of an apartment building where he lives and works. Cue Neil Gaiman-type fable with heaps of talking and hogwash. The film was also so gravely discordant with being coherent as a storytelling device that we wound up feeling frightfully concerned for Shyamalan's directorial future.
