Personal Beauty (This Week’s Movies)


Kristen Stewart: Personal Shopper (Carole Bethuel/IFC Films)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly.

Beauty and the Beast. “There’s digital fatigue, too. It’s too easy to point out that this movie is almost as much a work of animation as the ’91 picture, but all those CGI backdrops do blur together after a while.”

Personal Shopper. “While I was watching Personal Shopper, I wasn’t always sure about its apparent randomness. Then, in a final sequence set in a completely different location, the entire thing snaps into focus.”
