Shyamalan would have a shot at my second ten. Or if Sixth Sense was this decade instead of The Happening he'd probably make my top 10. I'm definitely an above average M. Night supporter (hence his place in my Great Directors marathon).

When I first had the idea and did a preview, I really liked how it came out.

Fortunately for me, I nobody that was especially prolific really struck a cord with me.

For like Sodebergh, I'd have posters 30pix wide. :)
