Reviews:
"[G]et on the wavelength of this mesmerizing, singularly unusual genre experiment and the undead being at its center stops looking so silly." -- Grade: A- - 07/06/2017 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 4 -- "The film is a ghost story, in the sense that there’s a ghost in it, but it’s also many other things: a love story, a science fiction-inflected story about time travel and time loops, and a story about loneliness and denial..." - 07/06/2017 RogerEbert.com


"Opening in domestic contentment, moving through personal anguish and ending with a cosmic lament, it’s a simple, wrenching story of love and loss that pries open a window onto eternity." - 07/06/2017 Los Angeles Times


"A GHOST STORY keeps expanding metaphysically even as it pares away details; it becomes simpler, more elemental, and more emotionally transparent as it goes." - 07/13/2017 Boston Globe


"[An] ingenious and affecting new film....Just when you think you’ve cracked the film’s circumscribed logic, it opens up and goes wild in ways at once too wondrous and too preposterous to spoil." - 07/05/2017 New York Times


"While Lowery’s actual method of delivery may not be scary, it’s sure to haunt those who open themselves up to the experience." - 01/22/2017 Variety


"[D]isturbingly beautiful and spiritually challenging..." - 07/12/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


"Lowery’s greatest success is in keeping this intentionally spare story from feeling like a gimmick." - 07/06/2017 The Atlantic


"By the standards of the moody art-house meditation on love, loss, memory, forgetting, attachment, letting go and the nature of eternity, it’s pretty darn great." - 07/13/2017 Washington Post


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "This is a poetic and profound experiment you do not want to miss." - 07/05/2017 Rolling Stone


"The film's sense of time and space -- past, present and future -- grows steadily more elastic, porous, infinite." - 01/22/2017 Hollywood Reporter


3 stars out of 5 -- "A GHOST STORY is both deeply intimate and vast in scope, bridging years, then centuries, before looping back on itself." - 08/01/2017 Empire


"Pensive, precise and with an elegant, looping structure, this is a first-rate piece of direction from Lowery, who also wrote the screenplay." - 08/13/2017 The Guardian


"The wildly nonlinear tale of a phantom stuck to the home he adored is also a poignant examination of life and death, everlasting love and how the world moves on long after we’re gone." - 12/26/2017 USA Today
