Personal Shopper and Kristen Stewart..Letterboxd 5 star review

Personal Shopper2016★★★★★

Firstly, Kristen Stewart is an amazing actress and delivers a subtle and layered performance. It’s great to see her pushing her boundaries, and it really displays her strong work ethic in trying to reclaim her artistic image post-Twilight, though I’m sure she brings many ardent fans along with her.

Pairing up with Olivier Assayas again has resulted in a daring and phenomenal film off the back of their last venture, The Clouds of Sils Maria, another fantastic film. Assayas dives head-first into the horror genre and aims to subvert it effortlessly. Early in the film, we find out that Maureen (Stewart) suffers from a heart malformation, and that she could drop dead of a heart attack at any time. The doctor’s prognosis: avoid extreme physical or emotional stress. Once this is…

NZIFF Personal… Stewart is a godsend, I am addicted to seeing where her career will lead her; she leads and I am going to follow.

The first five minutes feel like a normal, boring ghost horror movie about a woman alone in an old dark house away from civilisation as she attempts to converse with a ghost. So yes the first five minutes are boring, I am glad they got all the boring out in the beginning because after the first scene it is anything but.

Maureen (Kristen Stewart) is living in Paris and is waiting…

Screen Catcher

Kristen Stewart has come a long way after Twilight. I’m not talking about her big budget roles in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘American Ultra’. Those are the films that most people whom I call ‘Stewart Criticisers’ seem to recognise her from. Twilight is seen as a catastrophe for Stewart’s career. Her role as Bella overshadowed the brilliant indie films she starred in on the side. ‘The Yellow Handkerchief'(2010), ‘The Runaways’ (2010), ‘Welcome to the Riley’s’ (2010). Those are all films in which Stewart’s performances garnered positive reviews. In fact, Kristen’s recent choices in indie roles have improved her relationship with critics, as evidenced by the most recent Oscar buzz generated around her role in ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’ after being the first american actress to win a Cesar. If critics had it their way, she would have definitely been in the front line for best supporting actress at the…

Kristen Stewart with Juliette Binoche in Clouds of Sils Maria (2014) Kristen Stewart with Juliette Binoche in Clouds of Sils Maria (2014)

Last year Kristen Stewart made history by being the first American actress to win a César, the French equivalent of an Oscar. This will have no doubt come as a surprise to her many detractors, who regularly flock to Facebook, YouTube and Goodreads threads to endorse proclamations that, “Her facial expression never changes” and “I can’t believe why anyone keeps hiring her” and “Kristen Stewart can’t act”.

Anyone who has seen Clouds of Sils Maria, the Olivier Assayas film for which Stewart won the award, and in which she holds her own opposite Juliette Binoche, of all people, will disagree. One of the interesting things about the film is the way the younger woman fully embraces her supporting status, allowing her uncertainty and acknowledgement of the French star’s greater experience to flesh out her role as factotum to…
