A Ghost Story is a supernatural thriller with a very slow narrative. A very very slow narrative. There are many scenes that hang much much longer than is expected, but this adds to discomfort of the experience. This is a film that requires more patience than we obviously had to give it. It's beautifully filmed and had a delightful incompleteness that defies Hollywood conventions. It's not going to be a blockbuster hit, but certainly worth a look.
