The Ghost Writer
Dir. Roman Polanski (2010). Polanski hasnt made a movie so sustained in the decades since The Tenant or even 1966s Cul de Sac. In a way, this seemingly modest political thriller is almost their sequel. Shot in Germany (standing in for the wintry New England beach), impeccably directed, and edited under house arrest, its rich with subtext.
