July 21, 2017
Is there anybody out there? Olivier Assayas captures the uncertainty of the digital age in a haunting drama of isolation.
June 30, 2017
Once again, [Stewart plays] a personal assistant who loses herself by supporting somebody else. ... It's a self-effacing performance made of raw nerves.

June 27, 2017
The film, which stars Kristen Stewart as a taciturn personal shopper and medium mourning her twin brother Lewis' death, has a masterfully unsettling ambience set by director Olivier Assayas.
June 15, 2017
"Personal Shopper" is not a warm 'n fuzzy movie. It exists at a remove, all the better to give us chills and ask some questions.
June 13, 2017
KrisIt's ironic that so huge a star-a role Stewart is only now beginning to accept-should radiate more powerfully than any of her peers the frustrations experienced by ordinary mid-20-somethings.
May 30, 2017
[Personal Shopper] displays a conversely intuitive, almost millennial understanding of the changing European landscape and the New World citizens who populate it.
May 10, 2017
Assayas has torn up the rule book in crafting Personal Shopper and audiences willing to show patience with plot strands that seem unnecessary will find something richly rewarding.

May 9, 2017
Revelling in ambiguities and uncertainties, the film not only invites us to puzzle out its mysteries, but also asks us to explore the very source of our unease.

Stewart is placed in far scarier circumstances than in the vampire-driven Twilight franchise that made her name.

May 6, 2017
A knockout psychological thriller...Not a lot of effects involved here but some top-notch tension from director Olivier Assayas...A very unusual, very effective ghost story.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 3, 2017
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.

April 29, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
April 29, 2017
A delicious thriller with broader spiritual themes about the modern world that aren't entirely developed. Stewart continues to shine.

April 28, 2017
There's a lot to digest, and the film's atmospheric ambiguity can be frustrating. Still, Stewart balances strength and vulnerability and garners sympathy for her character's plight.
April 23, 2017
A ghost film haunted several times over, and haunting in just as many ways.
April 18, 2017
Personal Shopper constantly shifts from family drama to horror film and psychological thriller without losing 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.

April 13, 2017
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.

April 12, 2017
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.

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.
