That Sudden Left Turn in 'A Ghost Story'
We don't want to give away exactly how David Lowery's cerebral, soulful, achingly beautiful tale of a man (Casey Affleck), a woman (Rooney Mara) and a filmmaker gambling that you'll go along with watching someone in a crude Halloween costume for most of a movie takes a midway detour into uncharted territory – suffice to say, it does not involve eating a whole pie in a single shot. (That happens earlier.) What we will say is that the movie suddenly widens its scope in a way that had us audibly saying, "Whoa"; that it made us rethink this entire mediation on grief and memory; and that we were tempted to start clapping in the theater. If you've seen it, you know what we're talking about. If not, check it out. Sheet happens.
