Personal Shopper

Well this seemed to me a bit drippy and pretentious.  Little Kristen Stewart is playing a grown up in this movie, but seems to not have any other expression than the mopey one she has in most movies.  She is living in Paris following the death of her brother, who she is waiting for him to contact her from the dead.  To earn her keep she is the personal shopper for a rich celebrity.  Oh the horrors of having to go and get Chanel and diamonds and be paid for it.

I don't know - I didn't really buy into it, it just all seemed a bit dreary to me.  2/5

I am usually wary of any movie that wins awards at film festivals. They seem like many modern artistic efforts, whether in movies, painting or architecture: created so that artists can pat each other on the back and tell each other how good they are. There seems little attempt to involve the people who will actually watch, listen to, live in, work with the finished product.
