Twitter Capsule: Exciting how many moods and genres this film tries on, even if its ideas seem gradually simpler. Stewart nails it.

VOR:   Reprises too many styles, faces, and structures Assayas has assayed before for Personal Shopper to feel truly new. Still, it's highwire. A key Stewart turning-point.
