The following has been written as a critical analysis of the film The Sixth Sense In this essay I will discuss a large variety of techniques and parts which help create the film I will also focus on a certain extract of said film The basic plot of the film is simple it is focused on a young boy Cole who can see ghosts however this is not the only element to it Other focuses are on the life of the child psychiatrist Malcolm who helps this boy Throughout the film his and Coles life intermix as he tries to help him The twist comes at the end where you find out that Malcolm is really dead Clues to this are hidden throughout the film as you see no-one speaks to Malcolm or acknowledges his presence apart from Cole You also see a scene at the beginning where Malcolm is shot by an old patient who he had thought hed cured but as the rest of the film is set the next year you automatically presume that he is still alive My initial response to the film was that of awe It is well scripted acted and symbolism is used throughout At first I just presumed that Malcolm was alive because of the cleverly situated people and places around him Bruce Willis was the main actor in the film playing Malcolm and he did so very effectively and realistically The same can be said of Haley Joel Osmond who played Cole as he was only a small boy but his talent was quite astounding They both seemed really into the role and it made me wonder if I was watching a film or whether it was real life within the TV screen I think the intended audience is adults of around 21 however it is a film that I think all but small children could get into and enjoy
