Despite my opinion of Roman Polanski as a person, he is one heck of a director. In The Ghost Writer, he manages to create suspense with a slow but deliberate pace that eventually brings things to a boil, then an explosion. McGregor and Brosnan are top notch, the look of the movie is fantastic, the score amazing, and the ending a surprise. While it does run a bit too long and the explanation of things a bit too “eh, that’s it?”, it’s still a good film. Not a great film, but a good one. A rare movie that doesn’t follow the “rules” of test screenings and “Blockbusters 101” formulas…refreshing. — Stormy Curry
