A Ghost Story is haunted more by tortured feeling than frighten signal, and a handy of black humour, drier than asbestos dust. It invites you to make what you will of its central image a ghost wearing a sheet past eye-holes bearing in mind a kids Halloween getup, or a loud ungainly emoji. Lowerys film has the associated deadpan, unreadable setting as that white-masked outlook. But the shroud is worn as elegantly as the films own take goal and valorous simplicity.
Like Lowerys movie Aint Them Bodies Saints (2013), which moreover starred Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, it is a relation of sundered hero praise. But it is with a piercingly uncharacteristic meditation regarding loss and grieving and what it means to imagine the people we adore one daylight going a propos without us, and to imagine how the world is and was well along than our own fragile, performing lives. Does such an encounter of imagination entail ghostlike alienation and trauma?
