    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★★

    First of all, that pie scene. I actually really liked that scene as well as the opening. They both conveyed this sense of emptiness that rarely you see in a film. There was a subtle suspense on how she was going to break down in that pie scene, and it’s such a humanizing and powerful moment imo. 

    Anyways, A Ghost Story was a mesmerizing meditation on grief, letting go, and the enormity of time and the universe. I was enthralled…

    Expected a skateboarding movie; did not expect an emotional rollercoaster.

    It starts as a hopeful, fun, coming-of-age skateboard documentary but as the characters grow up and change, so does the documentary as well.

    the greatest thing ever put into film. It still amazes me that this was released and made even before man stepped on the moon. It’s by all means an astounding and profound cinematic experience.

    The final act of this film still had me on the edge of my seat, it’s so exhausting to watch. Despite the lengthiness of it all, I never found it boring, the time seems to fly by as I really become transfixed throughout the entire movie. I also think it combined many of the best elements found in Fincher's earlier works. The movie really gives you all of the details, ending with everything unraveled, completely true to the real-life events, no clean answers and with you having to decide.
