The Ghost Writer

The last time I left a theater knowing it'd be a long time again before I saw a movie as good as the one I just watched? That'd be when I walked out of The Hurt Locker. The Ghost Writer was superb, if also incredibly old-fashioned. It's very much of that old school of political thrillers like The Parallax View. And it's effectively filled throughout with a suffocating, squirm-inducing tension. It's a great piece of film making, with all too real turns by the cast.

And as an aside, that house is f-ing gorgeous. That was a beautiful piece of construction.
