Oh well, Olivier Assayas has never been a real author of French cinéma; in truth, he's rather médiocre. Poor K. Stewart had to go topless a couple of times in film, for what? Ass-a-yas made another boring film Irma Vep (give him credit for adapting a French comic before Hollywood) with his then short-lived wife Maggie Cheung, had her all decked out in tight black leather/spandex (good thing Maggie hardly spoke French in her get-up), sounds familiar Kristen? Poor Kristen, the latest Assayas-fetish?

Perhaps I should have been grateful for the experience offered here. The focus is on a person who seems so utterly cut off from any feeling of joy at all. It is true she has suffered the death of her twin, but apart from an attraction to the spirit world, there does not seem any evidence of human closeness to that lost relationship. Her strongest emotion might be hatred of her job and her boss. She has fears possibly connected with 'the forbidden', but her acting out does not connect her to others. Critics have claimed this to be a treatment of grief and loneliness; they might be correct, but it plays out in a life on the brink of nothingness. Very possibly this is a testament, 'The Way We Were' 2017, and might encourage us to meet ourselves and recognize the enemy.

So, two stars for entertainment; four or five for medicine?

What a very boring movie! Hard to follow as there is not a story line at all. Does show you how to get on & off planes & trains in Europe..... and the star performed very well, conveying boredom! Should be 1/2 star, not 2 1/2.

Merde! There is a lot of vitriol for this one. It's not a horror movie, for one, and it's not a Hollywood movie, for two. After their successful collaboration on "Clouds of Sils Maria," French auteur Olivier Assays and erstwhile "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart re-team for a kind of art house ghost story. Clearly it's lack of a traditional narrative and its tendency towards abstraction and ambiguity did not sit well with a lot of people. I found it a little slow and meandering, but I like most everything Assayas ("Carlos," "Irma Vep") does, and I appreciate that K Stew is taking on interesting projects and roles very different from those that made her an unlikely star.

One of the worst most boring "horror" movies I've ever seen. The main actress is dull and insipid. Am I supposed to be impressed by her shopping? Do they think we are intellectual morons? And the ghost was one of the cheesiest computer graphics in recent memory. And this is a Criterion label? Oh excuse me I didn't know such pretentious cinematic drivel counts as Criterion. Laughable excuse for a movie.

What was that all about? I can’t believe I sat there and watched Kristen Stewart text a movie. Jeez. It’s like watching paint dry. A $400.00 hair cut and men’s to big thrift clothes doesn’t make sense to me. Personal Shopper? I thought she was a Personal Picker Upper. Kristen rides a Moped, Kristen rides a Moped with a million dollars of jewelry in a sack, Kristen texting, Kristen distraught, Kristen sullen, Kristen texting some more, Kristen naked. Whatever. Kristen is cute, I’ll give her that.
