The funny thing about this flick is that I wasn't really planning to see it but since there was not much else to see, I thought I might as well check it out.

On the other hand, Roman Polanski has always been one of my favorite directors so I should have known better and he didn't disappoint me here. First of all, the... read more

The Ghost Writer directed by Roman Polanski starts out with the apparent suicide of a writer who was writing the autobiographical memoirs for a former British Prime Minister, played effectively by Pierce Brosnan.

" When: January Where: At Home, Netflix Instant Rating: 3/5 stars Overall: So so Thoughts: I was looking for some escapism movies after feeling down about current events/politics, tried this on Netflix Instant without reading the description, probably not the best choice for a distraction but I ended up getting kind of into it. My biggest issue, was that I didn't understand the main character's motivation to continually engage in what was obviously a life threatening mystery. Most people would"
