A Ghost Story (2017)

David Lowery directs Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara and Will Oldham in this arthouse visual poem about a dead lover who haunts his home in a sheet, with two holes cut in it for eyes.

Pretentious but well made, often achingly dull. All the guessable ideas and images churned up from the concept and themes of loss, grief, memory and space time you can get from the trailer. The feature length version just feels like a watered down tautology straining for significance. There is some good music diegetically attached to the slender narrative however.
