A Ghost Story is about patience, it is about resilience, it is about who we are as human beings on levels physical, spiritual, practical and metaphorical, about how we drift through the minutes of our lifetimes not ever truly realizing how precious a single second is until it is possible too late to matter.
“I made [A Ghost Story] so intuitively and so quickly and organically that I never had a thesis statement prepared when I went into it. I still don’t. I still watch the movie when I see it as an audience member.”

“I’ve had people write parts for me. But I’ve never had anybody even think about writing a script for me. It’s pretty incredible.”
– Sam Elliott
“I just love that Jeff made a movie like this right now. I think it’s rare that people are making stuff like this, taking such risks when making movies. After watching this and seeing that, I hope that more people will be inspired to go crazy and make weird stuff. That would be great.”
– Aubrey Plaza
“The movie shows two very brave people who choose not to do that, taking their constituents with them on a perilous journey towards compromise. It seems to me that’s what we’re ultimately celebrating with the picture; compromise and the ability to live together.”

As bits of fluffy fun are concerned Lost in Paris is a dance of delicious amusements, watching it an absolute pleasure I’m certain to indulge in whenever the opportunity to do so might fortuitously arise.
