While many movies portray Dissociative Personality disorder perfectly it’s Split that left me in awe and yeah the ending.
The big twist comes after the plot has been resolved and even a “Split” title card comes on screen. We then cut to a diner where a TV news report tells patrons about the events we’ve just seen, and that Casey’s captor (James McAvoy) is at large and has been dubbed with the name “The Horde”. Three women begin discussing these events and one says, “Wasn’t there a guy in a wheelchair about 15 years ago? What was his name?” David Dunn (Bruce Willis) then leans forward and says, “Mr. Glass.” The camera then lingers on Dunn’s face, strongly suggesting that the emerging superhero from Shyamalan’s 2000 film will face off against The Horde.
For those who never saw Unbreakable (spoilers ahead for a 17-year-old movie), the film follows David Dunn, a security guard who’s the lone survivor of a massive train crash. Dunn eventually comes to learn that he has superpowers and that the man he thought was his mentor, Elijah Price aka Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), is actually his archnemesis. It’s a fascinating look at the tropes of the superhero genre and trying to reposition them into a more realistic framework. While the twist at the end feels unnecessary (Price is revealed to have orchestrated a series of accidents through flashbacks we couldn’t have possibly known about), the movie as a whole is fairly interesting and it’s certainly worth watching.

We leave you with a poem on Multiple Personality Disorder instead:
06/03/2017 – 11.15 am
She walked into the clinic
With stilettos that sparked gold
And a skirt that whirled like poetry
She pushed the door instead of pull
‘Fuck!!” Get a slider door doc
Hello Ms. Joshi said Dr. Panicker
How are you feeling today?
Ecstatic, I just had a healing spa
Wonderful Tina, Tell me how was your week?
It was good, I am working on my new exhibition
Wow, now that’s some news.
And I am over Robert now
I think I should love myself
Perfect Tina. Let’s see your case sheet.
13/03/2017 11. 15 am
Doctor rushes into clinic
Only to find Robert there
“Hey Doc, You are late” with a grin
Sorry Robert, was caught in traffic”
And by the way nice shoes.
Oh, I love glitters”
Cool! So how was your week
Bad doc, breakups suck.
They Do, but it’s just a matter of time
Let me have a look at your case sheet.
I hope you are sleeping okay, no waking up all night
I try doc, I do try. She seems to have moved on.
Will you try talking to Tina Doc, Just the bro thing
I will try Robert and if she doesn’t let her go.
And continue the pills. Text me if you need something
Robert stands up to leave and pulls the door .
Push it outside Robert”
Fuck! Get a slider door Doc”
