This was a very interesting film. The story takes you in multiple directions, leaving you wondering what genre of film you are really watching. Even the ending is left to interpretation, which makes the experience of watching Personal Shopper one that you must immediately repeat, in the hopes that you will catch something that you did not notice the first time you viewed it. Overall it has a perfect combination of horror and psychological thriller, and a score to match it. Multiple scenes in the movie leave you with this feeling of something not quite right, that something ominous is about to happen, and then it just keeps going. I have been a fan of Kristen Stewart for quite a while now and her performance in Personal Shopper is probably one of her best yet.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10
