A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story ★★★★★

For some films, less is more. For this film, less is everything.

A Ghost Story manages the incredible feat of being simultaneously immediate and distant, everywhere and nowhere in equal measure. 

It employs some of the simplest and oldest techniques known to this medium to spin its singular sense of poetry, and does so with such grace and care that one can't help but surrender to its power, just as we must all eventually surrender to a world beyond our very existence.

To me, it's hard to think of a better (modern) example of how far the possibilities of this medium can be stretched.
