Personal Shopper is definitely a festival film.
This adaptation manages to entertain but also suffers from weird tonal shifts and egregious product placement.
How often do you get to see a film in which the central character is a former goth girl now in the process of becoming a nun?
While this film provides a different point of view than what we usually get from the Western media, it’s still a highly selective point of view.
It’s a well-done film about a little-known chapter of history.
There are some problems with it, but it’s entertaining enough.
You’ll be bored out of your mind, and probably find your intelligence has been insulted as well.
Considering the battles are coherent, easy to see, and the punches and kicks seem real, it boggles the mind to wonder how the rest of it could fail so entertainingly.
It’s an extremely well-rounded release, the two films contained in it being a very inspired match.
Life is seldom simple, and trying to reduce it to dichotomies of good and bad may mean that you miss everything that is important.
