Supernatural Films on DVD

Writer-director David Lowery’s mindblowing Independent film A Ghost Story is only released on DVD in South Africa and is a must for anyone looking for a film that provokes the imagination and challenges the intellect. It features outstanding performances from Casey Aflleck and Rooney Mara as a passionate young couple who is seperated by a shocking loss, and discover an eternal connection proving that true love and soulamates are infitely eternal. The visually arresting (and hauntint) story concerns the passage of time via a couple and their house when Affleck’s character dies, and he appears in his old home as a ghost in a thick bed sheet with vacant eyes. He observes his wife’s depression from his demise, various new occupants, and glimpses both the future and the past of his surroundings. A Ghost Story is two sides of a coin. On one, it’s a sparse experience, with very little dialogue and numerous long takes that enhance the stillness and solitude of this afterlife. On the other side, it’s quite expansive, viewing Affleck’s lived experience in the house as but a mere speck of dust in time; time is cruel and reinforces our near irrelevance. The bonus includes an insightful audio commentary by David Lowery and his creative team, as well as a superb documentary on how the film was made, with interviews by the cast and crew.  Read an interview with writer-director David Lowery / Trailer
