The Ghost

Roman Polanski Perancis, 2010

dionysus67's rating of the film The Ghost Writer

Polanski's return to form generates an exemplar of understated suspense in a film of political acumen, in light of the UK/US 51st state politics. How elite groups featuring academics and 'fixers' solve problems is conveyed in a masterly way when Polanski substitutes action for mood rendering a ferry or an automobile a platform for digging into the conspiracy. Experly acted by all it entertains, engages and provokes.
