Shut up, M. Night Shyamalan [WTF]
M. Night, who’s directing the live-action adaptation of kids’ cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender, is suffering from the delusion that he is a highly regarded auteur:
“Your instinct is to distill me down into three characteristics: thrillers, scary, twist. Let’s just say, ‘Oh, that’s what he does’… Then when they come see Last Airbender – which has none of those three things in there – and yet, you’ll be able to tell in 30 seconds that I directed it.”
Why, because it will be laboured, pretentious and shitty?
He goes on at length about his artistic vision, but I had to stop reading because it was endangering my sanity and wellbeing.
