The Happening

Watching this is rather like watching the grass grow. And blow in the wind. And trees. Bushes. Hedges. Blowing. You get the idea.

The Happening

The Happening features an effectively stylized physical environment: rarely have clouds drifting overhead and wind blowing through trees and a sunny day been filmed so ominously.

Lady in the Water (2006)

Story's whiter-than-white skin, bloody cuts, color-shifting hair, and need to keep wet make her a bizarre amalgamation of fantasies, alternately "male" and "childish."

The Village (2004)

Noah is so wrapped up in his own emotions that he seems, at first, the most literal embodiment of the film's critique of a post-9/11 American isolationism.
