  1. gld48's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Understated. Best thing by Polanski for years up to that point.

  2. Bruno's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Eerie, somber, bleak - half of it, for there is an absurd tongue in cheek to it, which, it must be said, can at times undermine the real life commentary, by which I mean not a specific correspondence between this character and that person but rather about this whole milieu of secrecy and power - can these indifferent people be humanized?

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Un percutant et paranoïaque thriller politique, réalisé avec maestria et conviction par un insidieux et convaincant Polanski, dénonçant avec insolence et détermination les arcanes politiques et médiatiques d'événements contemporains possibles et plausibles dont on nous présente, dans l'actualité quotidienne, que les contours opportuns et les satisfaisantes et rassurantes apparences... www.cinefiches.com

  8. tgmf's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Great story, great cast, great scenery. Nothing special in particular but coupled altogether give the master away

  9. Arandhitio Ballagi's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    alrait polanski, you stole my heart

  10. Dalibor's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Evaluating movies like these often meets a crossroad between appraisal of director's virtue to pull out so much from such an uninteresting script, and plain fatigue by its boredom. For it really is a brilliantly photographed and edited film, with much of the drama relying on presented atmosphere rather than anything that really is going on.

  11. ammar's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

  12. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Very solid, with good performances and a well paved script. Ultimately quite forgettable however.

  13. AdrianM.'s rating of the film The Ghost Writer

  14. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Mysterious, haunting, thrilling, and full of twist. Roman Polanski succeed to bring a story about a nameless ghost writer of British prime minister. It's also frightening, although it's not a horror movie. Thanks to its cinematography and music score.

  15. Chris's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    A bit flawed in that the ending discovery was easily avoidable, but otherwise great in all aspects from acting to cinematography

  16. Addy K.'s rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    A master on cruise control. Effortless storytelling with Polanski's trademark visual imprint (mood, atmosphere). GHOST WRITER is the kind of film Hitchcock made (over and over again). But somewhere down the line, this type of thriller became "cliched". Polanski and co-writer Robert Harris rejig the formula with political intrigue plus a poetic, cynical ending. Desplat's score is propulsive, tense and just beautiful.

  18. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    In Roman Polanskis The Ghostwriter wühlt ein Mann ohne Vergangenheit herum in dem Leben eines Mannes mit zuvielen dunklen Flecken von früher. Er beginnt damit, das Werk des vorigen Ghostwriters zu lesen, doch es ist langweilig und konventionell. Mysteriöserweise starb dieser Autor. Nun soll also alles spannender werden - und womöglich tödlich...

  19. Ethan's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    This film is pretty basic but it's nice to watch Ewan McGregor trade blows with Pierce Brosnon.

  20. Emre's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    Well picked locations, foggy shots, a direct opening. What seems to be a great beginning for a film soon turns out to be entirely otherwise: shallow characters, open ended sub plots, flat conversations, and just that forced feeling of tension all add up to bringing the film down. Potentially having all the parts to make a great film, Polanski can't go further than creating something bigger than its parts.

  21. the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    The best Hitchcock film in 34 years. Oozes paranoia and suspense, Polanski never wastes a frame of celluloid or a line of dialogue in telling the story. Color symbolism and cinematography were also brilliantly executed.

  22. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

    I like the tracking shot following the note of paper as it gets passed among the party members. And also Eli Wallach too.
