Have I got Kristen Stewart whiplash, or is this my favourite film of the year?

The way the camera follows Kristen Stewart like a ghostly presence is magical, it makes the viewer both intimately connected to her and shuts us out completely. A film about transgression and desire and things beneath the surface, and wanting to leave your own body so badly but being too afraid to step into the light. It's Clouds of Sils Maria turned up to 100. I know a lot of people are finding that the supernatural aspect doesn't work but I swallowed it up, all of it.
