Personal Shopper (2016)

France, 106m, Colour
Director: Olivier Assayas; Cast: Kristen Stewart, Lars Eidinger, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anders Danielsen Lie, Ty Olwin, Hammou Graia, Nora von Waldstatten, Benjamin Biolay, Audrey Bonnet, Pascal Rambert

Personal Shopper is a suspenseful psychological thriller about an aloof young woman who has put her life on hold waiting for her recently deceased twin brother to make contact with her from beyond the grave. Both a murder mystery and a ghost story, this is a highly unusual film that is as interesting as it is ambiguous, and the kind of film that you want to dissect over coffee after viewing (Klaus Ming December 2017).

    I enjoyed this a lot. I think Stewart was the biggest factor. She got a bad rap at the beginning of her career (because she was in the you-know-what movies), but I think she’s terrific.

      I enjoyed your take on this film: I agree – it works “mostly because Stewart sells them so well.” This one deserves a look.
