The guys see the miracles this week on their podcast episode covering M. Night Shyamalan's 2002 film Signs. What starts as an attempt to critically break down the film, featuring one of each Mel Gibson's and Joaquin Phoenix's greatest performances, the podcast basically turns into a love-fest for what the Bit Players see as Shyamalan's greatest directorial achievement. Signs certainly seems to be the point in which everything best clicked for the polarizing filmmaker, where the otherworldly perfectly balances the humane and an understanding of self and family creates an understanding of the world at large.
