Default Unbreakable

Any love out there for M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable?
Along with Spiderman2, Chris Nolan's Batman movies, Iron Man and The Crow its one of my favorite 'superhero' films. Not to everyone's tastes, to be sure, but the cinematography, set and sound design and performances by all the actors are great. Symbolism is subtle and pervasive. And the direction is deceptively brilliant. In fact it would surprise me if its not studied in film classes.
Its not an action film, deliberately and slowly paced, but if a superhero really existed it would probably something like this.

Any love for Unbreakable?
