A Ghost Story
A Ghost Story, Directed and written by David Lowery, is a film simultaneously about the passage and stillness of time. It’s a film that seems to harbours a certain fixation on the mundane despite (or because of) the separation enforced. It serves as a confluence for sentiment and existential angst. Above all, it’s a film that meditates on the coin that is life and death, using its eccentricities not to sideline the viewer, but instead to overwhelm.
"A Ghost Story" Review
Filmmakers often like to explore the complex topic of the true meaning of life. Recent dramas on the subject include Terrence Malick's overly-ambitious "The Tree of Life" and the dry, yet complex sci-fi saga "Arrival". Elements of those films and others (and a touch of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!") are all a part of "A Ghost Story", a vivid, mysterious new indie.
