The Ghost Writer


Dir. Roman Polanski (2010).
Polanski hasn’t made a movie so sustained in the decades since The Tenant or even 1966’s 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, it’s rich with subtext.
