A modern-dress ghost story that somehow lacks the mystery and sense of the uncanny that made the ostensibly less supernatural previous Assayas/Stewart collaboration, 'The Clouds of Sils Maria,' an instant classic.
Part meditation on modern means of contact, part elusive ghost story... the signification of class and fashion and the fate of effortless style, a girlish clumsiness transformed in each awkward action and tensile interaction as elemental fierce presence.
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.
