That was an incredibly well-written and strongly thought-out article. I can highly respect where Scott's coming from, even if I don't agree all the time. I actually very much enjoyed 'Lady in the Water' as a film and am rather bamboozled by the comparison's of Shyamalan's ego as a director to Tom Cruise couch-jumping, placenta-eating puffed-up-ness to which he is being treated.

In any event, we can certainly be thankful that Shyamalan has a great collaborator in JNH, whom Night actually gives the freedom to run loose and create scores equally extravagant and important as Shyamalan believes his films to be. Scores of such continual high quality do not exist apart from Spielberg/Williams these days, and I hope JNH and Shyamalan's collaborations continue for a long, long time to come. It could be the some of the only music we have to really look forward to, considering the vast majority of garbage that has been thrown at us this year and the gradual decline in quality of film music as a whole... but, maybe that's just my pessimism speaking out based on this year's output.
