By day, Maureen (Kristen Stewart) haunts the premium racks looking to outfit her vainglorious celebrity boss Kyra (Nora von Waldstätten). By night, she’s a paranormalist eager to connect with her dead brother’s spirit. (The two made a Houdini pact in which the first to die swore to contact the other.) Presented with what’s easily her most challenging role to date, Stewart crushed it. For his second collaboration with the actress, Olivier Assayas once again relies on sleight of hand to peel back layers of movie star celebrity armor simply by reassigning it to another character, in this case client Kyra. The result is a broodingly erotic, at times hard to fathom, but always elegantly filmed portrait of modern alienation. Throw in a dash of unexpected humor and some rightly spectral — at times, outright ingenious — special effects, and the time flies by faster than the spirited CG ectoplasm. (2016) — Scott Marks
