Personal Shopper constantly shifts from family drama to horror film and psychological thriller without loosing the pace. [Full review in Spanish]
April 14, 2017
Olivier Assayas, along with his "co-creator" Kristen Stewart, have, in Personal Shopper, forged a thoroughly fascinating film that works on multiple threads and tangents.

Stewart's finest performance ... the film is the equal of Clouds of Sils Maria and up there with Assayas' best ... keeps shifting gears with highly-engineered precision ... Easy answers are not readily apparent [but] the whole is immensely satisfying.

It's a bit crackpot as drama, but Personal Shopper has such controlled burn, such depth of feeling around this topic of grief, and such an aching performance from Stewart, that it hardly matters that it doesn't quite make sense. Logic is over-rated.

When used well, she's an arresting screen presence. But the flatness of Stewart's intonation works against her in this film.

April 12, 2017
The saving grace is the commanding presence of Stewart in virtually every scene of the picture. Your mind way wander, but you won't be able to take your eyes off her for a moment.

Unlike a lot of filmmakers on this side of the Atlantic, Assayas lets a few mysteries remain once Personal Shopper is over. Mysteries lose much of their power if they are analyzed to death.

Defined by scenes that occur between two fixed points: a train travelling between Paris and London, the divide between belief and fear, the commercial interactions of a celebrity and a fashion house.

The film would be nothing without Stewart. You just can't take your eyes off her, whether she's involved in something wild and unpredictable or just talking into her phone.

April 7, 2017
Meandering but mesmerizing, this new film from French auteur Olivier Assayas is part old-style ghost story, part stylish Euro-thriller, part millennial sociological study.
April 5, 2017
Assayas often centres Stewart, lithe and blank, in the middle of casually elegant scenes. You can't take your eyes off her. And you shouldn't, ever again.

Terrific performance by Stewart but she needs a better script next time.

If you liked Clouds of Sils Maria, chances are you will be interested to see Olivier Assayas' latest film Personal Shopper, which offers Kristen Stewart once again a plum role, albeit in a film that struggles to make the grade.
March 31, 2017
This highly unusual work is a spellbinding meditation on grief and loss, Stewart's performance in it is nothing short of astonishing.
March 31, 2017
It's the rough edges, the dark corners of the movie, that make "Personal Shopper" such a strange and intoxicating experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

The end result is frustrating rather than mystifying, a movie as aloof and unreachable as Maureen herself.

French director Olivier Assayas and American actor Kristen Stewart may be the most effective director/actor pairing since Martin Scorsese met Robert De Niro -- and their latest collaboration, Personal Shopper, brings out the best from both of them.

March 30, 2017
Personal Shopper is a ghost story looking for answers, except no one seems to know the questions. Least of all Stewart, who can't seem to focus her inner turmoil into an effective presence.
March 30, 2017
The beauty of Kristen Stewart -- well, aside from her literal beauty, that is -- is that she can do almost nothing on camera and still be arresting.

If you're anything like me, you'll leave the theater feeling sad, invigorated, and, if the film's really working on you, just a little bit ashamed of yourself.
