I have watched this movie once. This was on .

In this singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence, a recently deceased, white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to try to reconnect with his bereft wife.

It's all about time.

A Ghost Story

Review

This is an unusual, yet evocative movie. It's unconventional – not only with the 4/3 ratio – but with the lingering and quiet cinematography. Some shots last minutes without movement and there is very little music or dialogue – in fact, half the dialogue comes from a monologue halfway through the movie.

Although it may be slightly pretentious in places, if you can embrace the artistic choices, the second half of the movie will keep your attention. It's impressive how the main character, which is a ghost wearing a potentially comical "bed sheet with two holes", can evoke so much sympathy. Dealing with grief and time, its thought-provoking and rewarding if you let it.
