Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Year Released: 2021
Rating: 2.0

Guy (Gael García Bernal) and his wife Prisca (Vicky Krieps) take their two small children to a resort for one final vacation (they're planning on getting a divorce) and get invited to spend time on a private beach where time doesn't function the way it normally does, so everyone ages at an extremely rapid rate.  The premise is somewhat interesting if you don't think too hard about it - it's based on the graphic novel by Pierre-Oscar Lévy and Frederik Peeters - but the presentation is iffy: the beach section feels entirely too much like a run-on sentence (Shyamalan's camera slides around rapidly, trying to keep up with all the changing and decaying) and the dialogue isn't particularly sharp (plus, some scenes are unintentionally funny, like the trophy wife who snaps her limbs because she's low on calcium).  However, I do believe Night sticks the landing: his trademark "twist ending" involves the concept of Utilitarianism and although the experiment would be beneficial for all mankind, it's also a massive rights violation (and has to be shut down immediately).
