    A Ghost Story - 9/10

    This was a really unexpected treat. All I really knew of it was the infamous pie scene so I went in with trepidation, half expecting pretentious arthouse guff. It felt like some of the early, lingering scenes (including the pie scene) were almost some kind of barrier that you had to endure and 'break through'.

    There are a few splashes of dark humour here and there and the casting is superb. Paul Whitehouse was a particularly inspired piece of casting. He is such a talented character actor. I would love to…
