A Ghost Story
With A GHOST STORY, acclaimed director David Lowery (AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS, PETE'S DRAGON) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection. Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life's ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A GHOST STORY emerges ecstatic and surreal - a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.

It's a movie that asks the viewer to be patient and think, to consider something that is generally hard to be thought about. The passage of time and not being able to have any part of you, you are just there with no substance, no purpose but just there.
Don't go into the movie expecting some jump scare marathon or something like Ghost, it's best to approach the movie with an understanding of something that is a lot more profound and usually the most terrifying thing to face. Time itself.
Quite enjoyed this movie, I found it fascinating. But then I tend to take a lot of time to think about the inevitable and the passing of time as I get ever closer to my own eventual death.
Not for everyone but if you're going to watch it then don't expect some flashy action movie, horror movie or romance movie because you won't find that here.
I’m afraid the practical cynic in me says: The production company wanted to get Casey Affleck as a star name, so he appears in the first few minutes of the film, does a couple of days work, we pay him his huge fee, and he leaves the production. Then somebody else can throw a sheet over themselves and we assume the viewers are gullible enough to believe Casey Affleck is under there. Absolute copout!!!
If the film had any integrity, it is Casey Affleck we would see as the ghost, then artistically we could see his feelings and reactions.
Don’t waste your money, leave this film where it should be… In a charity shop priced 50p
