The Ghost Writer (dir. Roman Polanski, 2010)

The Ghost Writer is handsome, smooth and persuasive. It is a Well-Made Film. Polanski at 76 provides a reminder of directors of the past who were raised on craft, not gimmicks, and depended on a deliberate rhythm of editing rather than mindless quick cutting. The film immerses you in its experience. It’s a reminder that you can lose yourself in a story because all a film really wants to do is tell it.” —Roger Ebert

Score: 9+ out of 10.
