I'm also glad to know there are other surprises for me in PL. You're right: mine was a bit of hyperbole -- well, whining, really :) -- and I will certainly still enjoy all those other spects of the film. But for me, the surprises definitely are one the best parts of a viewing or reading experience. I seldom guess the "twists" in movies like The Sixth Sense, usually because I suspend that active, analytical part of my brain while I watch. For me, it's more fun that way.
Thanks again ...
