A Ghost Story

Directed by David Lowery

2017

A Ghost Story is a supernatural drama; the title is literally fitting (the protagonist is a ghost), but misleading (A Ghost Story is never very scary and most ghost stories are actually better the less the ghost appears).Though little is said, the ghost is portrayed by a man wearing a sheet, and there is not much plot to speak of, A Ghost Story unfolds softly but powerfully.  A Ghost Story is at times almost pretentious, but it is saved from this by its genuine emotional force, its skillful storytelling, and its (surprisingly) even keeled philosophizing.

Would see.
