Personal Shopper (2016)


A personal shopper in Paris refuses to leave the city until she makes contact with her twin brother who previously died there. Her life becomes more complicated when a mysterious person contacts her via text message. (IMDb)
Stylish, and there are hints of a couple good movies in here (either a chilling psychological character study–see Maureen realizing she took home the jewelry bags–or a moody modern ghost story–see the edge-of-your-seat final scene with a great last line) but there’s also a bad one (see the monotonous texting thriller), and the good ones come and go and never tie together in a clear enough manner to build any manner of suspense. As it is, it’s frustrating and comes off as a tad pretentious.
6/10 (Mediocre)
