I thought this movie was so moving, it gives you an immediate response but also lingers through the whole movie. It takes a while to understand the drama and then recognizing the simplicity of this image and eerie effect that it gives is a testament to the filmmakers and actors and editing. I ...Read more

I'm surprised to find that I'm the only viewer so far to appreciate this one.
Super slow pacing is fine with me; it's action movies - bashing, crashing, car chases - that bore me.
The ghost/sheet was my favorite movie character in a long time. I found myself talking out loud to ...Read more

This film doesn't entirely escape its pretensions--the pace is slow, the film-making mannered and the ghost, an absurd contrivance--but the narrative has moments of sorrow and grace that are genuine. Horror fans should take a pass. Those who want a meditation on love, loss and the ...Read more

Innocent and sweet. A gently funny portrait of a teenage girl coming of age in slow motion, against the backdrop of a struggling, loving family, showing both the parents' and children's perspective. Religious high school is treated with a delicate, amusing touch and for once, the staff is not ...Read more

Tediously slow paced snoozer. Unneccesarily long, intended-to be-poignant camera shots offer lots of opportunity for bathroom breaks. The only thrill is in the last 10 seconds when you realize it's going to be over soon. Perhaps the worst hour you'll ever spend...and sadly, you can't get ...Read more
