      Audience Reviews for A Ghost Story

      • Apr 26, 2018

        Thought-provocative and emotionally evocative, A Ghost Story is an existential and atmospheric drama. When a young man is killed in a car accident he becomes a ghost, trapped in his house, forced to watch as his wife deals with her grief, moves on, and new people come and go. Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara lead the cast, but they don't really give performances as such since the film is mostly dialog free. Using visual storytelling, the film explores such themes as the nature of existence, solitude, and reflection. And director David Lowery employs a unique aesthetic, choosing a rounded full frame aspect radio and a muted color palette. Yet it's extremely slow paced, and often gets caught up in the mundane. A Ghost Story presents an interesting vision, but the artistry can get a little too abstract.

        A slow, depressing meditation on loss and legacy. If you can get through the snail-slow pace of the film (Mara Rooney eats a whole pie on the floor in a static shot without a single cut), it eventually pays off, but it will try your patience. Unless you are into artsy movies, avoid at all costs. Interesting characters would have helped.

        If a movie is boring on purpose, is it still boring? Well, as it turns out: Yes. But props for trying something different.

        Profoundly melancholy and devastatingly sad, A Ghost Story is a beautiful film about memory, loneliness and longing for something you lost forever. Full review on filmotrope. com
