    Personal Shopper


    A singular film that takes the tropes of supernatural horror and ghost stories and mediates them through technology in a way that makes them deeply melancholy. Also, it so completely understands the combined dread and strange erotic charge of the iPhone text bubble ellipsis.

    Absolutely one of my top films of the decade, and the movie that made me in to a Kristen Stewart believer. I still think about Ortberg's assertion that Stewart's various tics and gestures are not signifiers of "unsuccessful femininity" but of a queered, modern-day John Wayne.

    I did not expect to be moved to tears by Jane Fonda in this movie, but here we are.
