Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film A Ghost Story

At once a metaphorical examination of a relationship in collapse. The man can't come to terms with the potential loss of his other, so he clings, as a literal ghost, to the memory of a place & to the 'grief' of the one who left him. This is fine, but it's the way the film expands into something deeper, more existential, that makes it a masterwork. The hallucinatory death-dream of past, present & future is profound.
