    Kristen is good and the slow pace didn’t bother me, but there is literally no resolution in this movie. Who was texting her? Who was the killer? Was the ghost her brother? Almost two hours patiently watching and you’ll never know. Yeah. That’s a bit of a problem. I can use my imagination to some extent but not for an entire movie.

    Very creepy and all around well executed.

    The story rather interestingly hypothesizes that ghost sightings have less to do with otherworldly dimensions than the mental and emotional state of those who experience the same. And so a film delving onto the psyche of a young woman undergoing some shit. I liked it mostly, with some parts being mesmerizing, while still an uneven effort.

    For fans of the Kristen Stewart school of acting, all of the groundbreaking techniques that made her a star are here in "Personal Shopper". She starts sentences, pauses, then blurts out the rest of the line. She stammers. She looks nauseous. She blinks profusely and vibrates her head when "upset", otherwise keeping expressivity to a minimum. To say she is wan would be an understatement, but what isn't understated is how overrated this film is. With glowing reviews and a four minute standing ovation at Cannes, I was expecting it to astound me. After a slightly tense first viewing, I had to watch it again to figure out why it didn't click for me. The second watch only made the film's shortcomings that much more apparent. In the movie, KStew is a personal shopper for a wealthy model who she calls a "bitch" because the model doesn't want her trying on the expensive designer clothing she pays Stewart to buy for her. Stewart recently lost her twin brother because of a heart condition they both share. Her grief causes her to feel disconnected from others, but she believes she is a medium and is seeking closure in the form of a sign from her brother. After witnessing an apparition and receiving strange texts from an unknown entity, she is forced to confront her grief and her own mortality. Almost the entire second act consists of her going to different places and texting. There are a lot of fades to black diffusing the pace of the film - one in the middle of a scene of dialogue. With two or three genuinely tense moments littered among odd editing and obnoxious screens on screen (Skype, YouTube, texting), it's hard to appreciate the film's intellectual rewards. Is her brother trying to contact her? Is it all her delusion? Is she actually dead? I could understand making the effort to delve into the mystery of the film for the profundity of subject matter or some deeper philosophical intent, but the film seems to be content with being ambiguous and confusing (or maybe just confused). I don't need everything in a film explained, but then again I don't have to care at all either. Ultimately, the four hours I invested in "Personal Shopper" could have been better spent elsewhere.
