Personal Shopper review

This movie doesn’t work for me.  It is a cross between a ghost story and a mystery thriller. The mystery is too easy to solve.  The villain is so obvious a seven-year-old could figure out who it is.  This part of the movie ends abruptly.  The ghost story drags on to the less-than-horrifying ending.  The best part of the movie is the main character, who seems alienated and works for a movie actress as a “personal shopper.”  Her life is not fulfilled.  She says she is waiting for something.  What is she waiting for?  What she ultimately is waiting for is a sign that her life has some meaning.  She is full of existential angst.  But she is lost in a plot that doesn’t deliver.  Does she find meaning in the end?  I’m not going to tell you.
