IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN - FILM DIRECTOR

Rate this Entry

"I see dead people."



If you are a fan of the American cinema, you'll recognize this phrase from The Sixth Sense, one of the best movies of the last decade (and one whose surprise ending was nothing short of brilliant, in my opinion). It was written and directed by Manoj Nelliattu Shyamalan, an Indian immigrant known professionally as M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan is widely recognized as one of the leading directors in Hollywood and, aside from The Sixth Sense, he is responsible for films like Signs, Unbreakable and The Village. He also wrote the popular children's film Stuart Little.



The Sixth Sense earned Shyamalan the Academy Award nomination for best Director and best screenplay at the young age of 29. The American Film Institute named the film one of the 100 greatest motion pictures of all time, one of the most important honors a film can receive. Shyamalan is also one of the most widely recognized Indians in America not just from his movies, but from his classic American Express commercial that ran a few years back.

    Personally, I commend her on her role in trying to bring light to the immigration issues affecting millions. It would be interesting to see how her case turns out. She did leave her son here. Do you think she is barred for life since she crossed the border twice?

    Also, thanks for deleting the post by the other TX. That was not me, I only use my one email address so you'll always know when it's not me.

    You got it wrong. The 485 game's just started. Just wait for the DC protests on Sep 18.

    Ok, this is scary, just confirms the role of talk radio and Lou Dobbs in today's politics. This study is just what we needed, to increase the size of Lou Dobbs head, like it is'nt huge already.

    TX, not sure about that. The thing is nobody liked the CIR very much. Tech companies and even Immigration Voice thought the bill was very bad for legal workers already in the system. I think it really failed because, as one guy put it, "it offered too much to too many".
