    This movie is the work of a man who knows how to direct a thriller. Smooth, calm, confident, it builds suspense instead of depending on shock and action. -Roger Ebert

    la veo de tanto en tanto nomás para acordarme de cómo se escribe, se filma y se monta un thriller.

    The version I watched was titled "The Ghost".

    This is actually a bit awkward since I'm of the opinion that this movie should never really have been made. I've already been asserting that the whole failure to expedite Roman Polanski was an utter farce. (Also, at the beginning of this post I link to some Filmdrunk articles where he writes some amusing stuff on the issue. Oh and also this quote. And this from Chris Rock.)

    In my defence, I…

    I like a film that doesn't think you're stupid. It comes as no surprise that The Ghost Writer is a smart thriller since the film comes from the mind of Roman Polanski.

    The Ghost Writer has a lot of similarities with one of Polanski's best films, Chinatown. Polanski replaces a hard-nosed private investigator with an inquisitive writer, then updates it for the times. Instead of Chinatown we have Old Haven (Martha's Vineyard). Okay, maybe I'm stretching it a bit.

    The Ghost Writer is no Chinatown but it spawns from the same idea. Where putting together the pieces is half the fun.

    Like a novel, directed fact by fact, without almost any trace of passion. So much music, but it's been nice to hear it.
    I think the film has two scenes at the end of the movie which so much people could find awesome. Before these, I found everything like what I've just said in the beginning.

    Right on Chinatown's tail and moving in closer with each subsequent viewing. It's that good.

    Albeit slow in some areas it is well worth hanging on because of a rewarding ending.

    When Roman Polanski makes a thriller/subgenre film he really knows how to create a dreary atmosphere such as with this movie and Frantic. It can be slow at times and some of the political aspects are not that interesting but when they are it has your attention backed with good performances from Pierce Brosnan and Ewan McGregor.
