Trivia

David Lowery, who both wrote and directed the film, characterized his idea to create a movie about a ghost as a primordial miasm in his brain, as he visioned a ghost exactly like the one that is presented in the movie. He believes that it is a very goofy image that is breaking from the norm in terms of how a story is told and the tools that are used for it. See more »

Infuriatingly pretentious
12 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Such an incredible disappointment. Fantastic actors totally wasted, mumbling their way through this utter drivel. Mind numbingly slow. Wants to be poignant, totally misses it. Watch the trailer only, don't bother with the whole film. Go and watch paint dry instead as a better use of your time.
