I already saw this movie but since it was a while back , I was quite eager to watch it again. The funny thing about this flick is that, the first time I watched it, 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. Eventually, it turned out to be a pretty good flick, much better than I expected. On the other hand, Roman Polanski ha... read more

Description: When a successful British ghost writer, THE GHOST, agrees to complete the memoirs of former British Prime Minister ADAM LANG, his agent assures him it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. But the project seems doomed from the start—not least because his predecessor on the project, Lang’s long-term aide, died in an unfortunate accident.

" Where: At Home, Netflix Instant 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.
