A stirring depiction of grief in the form of a psychological thriller, and a chilling meditation on modern modes of communication and the way we mourn those we love.

you know it's off to a bad start when you hit the fast forward button only 5 minutes into the movie. I shoulda kept it pressed.... that an hour I'm never going to get back.
Please insert your favourite obscene expletives at this point in my comment to indicate how awful this movie is.

What was that all about? I can’t believe I sat there and watched Kristen Stewart text a movie. Jeez. It’s like watching paint dry. A $400.00 hair cut and men’s to big thrift clothes doesn’t make sense to me. Personal Shopper? I thought she was a Personal Picker Upper. Kristen rides a Moped, Kristen rides a Moped with a million dollars of jewelry in a sack, Kristen texting, Kristen distraught, Kristen sullen, Kristen texting some more, Kristen naked. Whatever. Kristen is cute, I’ll give her that.

"Personal Shopper" rate zero stars out of five. The hero of ther movie is haunted through her cell phone texting buy a dead spirit. This could have worked. Unfortunately there was too much text to read. Excessiv e texting ruined this movie. It also took too long to get the expense. The acting is bad. "Personal Shopper" is not worth viewing in my humble opinion. It is not a classic horror like Psycho. Don't waste your time on "Personal Shopper".

No suspense. No horror. No action. No point. Forget it. Borrow something else. Anything else. Well not ANYTHING else. "The Last Face" is worse - WAY WORSE. Don't bother with that one, either. Borrow an Alfred Hitchcock movie instead.

Pointless. It plays like a travelogue for Europe as Kristen Stewart (the personal shopper and "medium") crisscrosses Europe by plane, train and scooter. European interiors and exteriors are beautiful as are the clothes she selects for her employer, but none of this is enough to save the movie. She starts texting someone "from the great beyond?" and that's where things start to get ridiculous. I had known Kristen Stewart to choose interesting, intelligent, smaller films of late. What went wrong? Kristen, you are smarter than this movie. You can do better. There is another movie called 'Her' that deals with communication with a "someone digital" that does a lot better job at speaking to the consequences of of a digital world. I don't really know what 'Personal Shopper' was trying to say about anything.

I'm not KS fan. However, I cannot deny her talent.

Didn't know going in the whole movie's story. Combination of solid acting, intriguing visuals, introduction to a usually private service industry, and the Euro setting made for a sort of refreshment.

An ambiguous finish is fine but this one was umimpressive as well.

This is a mysterious movie that doesn't reveal what its about until around the half-way point. It combines a bit of horror, suspense, mystery and sci-fi. I actually found the scenes following KS around Paris and London to be quite interesting - a window into an unusual job that most of us don't even know exists (hence the title Personal Shopper). I'll admit that my first reaction to her being a medium was, "Oh no, why did I pick out this movie?" but her background story was sufficient to make me want to know more. The two negatives are: the middle half hour is a constant stream of texting between KS and a mysterious "stalker"; and, there are 2 or 3 scenes shots in nearly total darkness (I played with my TV settings but could not get good clarity).

I'm so glad I didn't let the negative reviews stop me from watching this movie. First I don't think of my self as a Kristen Stewart fan. I find her very brooding and not very entertaining. I was interested in this movie because of I truly enjoyed The clouds of Sils Maria which she also stared in by the same director. I didn't realize that this movie was listed as a paranormal movie, I found it to be very scary. So glad I could stop it at one point and return to it. The story line is really a mystery and very intriguing. Loved it and would watch it again and recommend it those who enjoy great story lines even if not a fan of Kristen's.
