    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.

    With the exception of the last fifteen minutes, I found it rather boring, Polanski regardless. And when I am bored, I keep myself occupied by noticing details pertaining to the production of the film (occupational hazard, I guess), and when I do, some things really frustrate me. Like Photoshopped images. This film must have some of the worst ones, and it would be OK if it was just one image in one shot. Here, the images are being shown over…

    Polanski nos regala un thriller político inquietante, húmedo y pausado. La primera escena es toda una declaración de estilo y de intenciones: El ferry, el último coche, un cuerpo ahogado en la orilla...sublime.
    A pesar de que la trama avanza con el ritmo adecuado, buenos diálogos e interpretaciones bastante dignas, puede que la historia no termine de atrapar a algunos debido a la temática, a priori, poco llamativa de esta.
    La escena final, las piezas que encajan del todo, lo que no nos enseña, el mensaje que lanza al espectador en forma de páginas que se pierden con el viento. Una delicia.

    Enjoyable enough, glad I watched it but wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Great actors, decent albeit predictable/cliche outcome. Pretty scathing on Tony Blair

    There's little original in The Ghost, especially when its big reveal harks back to the work of Frederick Forsyth (specifically the stuff about then leader of the GLC Ken Livingstone in his novel The Fourth Protocol) and the paranoid delusions of Peter 'Spycatcher' Wright - albeit with a 21st Century, Post Cold War twist, but regardless of its familiarity this remains a strong outing for director Roman Polanski in the twilight of his career.

    In Robert Harris' novel (which he…

    A ghostwriter hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister uncovers secrets that put his own life in jeopardy.
    In all departments skillfully executed thriller, although the final revelation of the conspiracy is rather disappointing.

    I've known about this film since it came out. I was so excited. The Trailer made it look like a Da Vinci Code kinda thriller and I love that. SO for five years I was look for this film (whenever I remembered it exists) and today I found it. And it was glorious. It isn't a Da Vinci Code style thriller. It's a very slow movie, that keeps pulling twists and turns.This isn't a whodunit thriller though, it's much more…

    If I ever could own this fantastic beachhouse. Best of all, the beachhouse was a set in Usedom (interior & exterior) and Sylt (landscape) although it's supposed to be on Martha's Vineyard as Polanski can't enter the US. The NY publishing house actually is in Berlin.

    Until the very end, an enjoyable plot that only suffers from a weak ending and lost the movie half a star.
