I'm in tears. One of the most moving and powerful movies I've ever seen. Many people don't understand this film because of the slow pace. But the patience watchers will be rewarded with a touching story.

Poetic. We're all a little meaningless. Life is waiting and then we die.

I have been wanting to watch A Ghost Story for the past month, so when my local theater started showing it a week ago as part of its Indie lineup, I couldn't wait. And I get why it has a 91% on RottenTomatoes and lots of positive reviews and all that but... man, is it a boring movie. I get that it is a well-made with great editing, direction and some amazing long single-shot scenes. I get the poetic message that it is trying to send, and it does a good job with that. However, I just can't get over the fact that the entire movie is incredibly boring. I honestly could not wait for this movie to finish (which is tough to do with a movie that is less than 90 minutes long). Imo don't watch this in theaters. Wait for it to come out on home video. At least you can fast-forward at home...

Haunting and sad, this is a powerful piece, and like the ghost at the heart of the story, this is sure to stay with me for a long time to come.

Goodness me, this film is the most polarising film I think I have ever seen. There appears to be one group of people who unresolvedly hate the film and another who absolutely love it but nothing in between.

I can see why people would walk-out in cinema showings and hate the movie with a passion. More

If a movie is boring on purpose, is it still boring?
Well, as it turns out: Yes.
But props for trying something different.

_Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._

**A love story from another dimension!**

I did not think what the title says was literal. I assumed some person with social-shy, wore a white cloth like a mask to confront it. Totally surprised by what I saw. Frankly, I did not like at the first. It was a boring start. I could not overcome that p More
