Old ★★★★★

One of the most horrifying aspects of life is the fact that we can wake up and feel like an entirely different person than we were the day before; the particular (and peculiar) horror of M. Night Shyamalan's "Old" is that the characters become a different person every thirty minutes. At times it feels like the conceit of a Michael Crichton novel handled with the clinical precision of Ridley Scott's "Alien"; it's also likely Shyamalan's best film in almost twenty years, a story about how family is merely a means by which we forgive each other for our gravest flaws, a grace that is never more poignant than at the time of our (rapidly approaching) end.
