Unbreakable

{5/5} “This is an art gallery, my friend, and this is a piece of art.”

Unbreakable, released in 2000

David Dunn is in a terrible train crash — he’s the only survivor and doesn’t have a scratch on him. As he starts thinking about it, he realizes that he can’t remember ever being sick. Elijah Price, a comic book expert who leaves a note on Dunn’s windshield, thinks that Dunn might be indestructible — in other words, a superhero.

It starts slowly but builds to an incredible conclusion — both with the story and with the music. It’s a masterpiece.

The scenes with David and his wife and/or son are superb.

Stars Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robin Wright. Directed by M. Night Shyamalan (Split). The mysterious music is by James Newton Howard.

This is probably the 3rd time I’ve seen it.
