A Ghost Story: Movie Review

A Ghost Story: Movie Review

Emma Coons, Sheet Fanatic

Yes, that’s right. You saw that right. That is Casey Affleck, Academy Award winning Casey Affleck, in a sheet. A Ghost Story explores what it would be like to see your world move on after you do. In the movie, Casey Affleck’s character dies early on in a car crash and the premise was to see his world move on from him. In a sheet.

As you may be able to tell, I was NOT a fan of this movie. I went in with okay expectations. I went with someone who really wanted to see it, and I thought the premise was interesting, but the premise was not what the movie provided. A Ghost Story was 87 minutes long, but it genuinely felt like AT LEAST 3 hours. I was definitely struggling to stay awake. Why? It was freakishly boring! I don’t mean to sound rude or not objective, but this movie just genuinely didn’t provide much to the viewer. There’s a scene in this movie that was ACTUALLY 7 minutes long. What happened in these 7 minutes? Rooney Mara ate a pie. The whole time.

In conclusion, don’t see this movie! It has a 92% critic review; however, it has a 67% audience score. I still don’t know how it’s that high, but that’s a big difference. If you’re into seeing artsy, pretentious movies, go see it! Don’t talk about how good it is, we’ll all know you’re lying.
