I wouldn't think a film like this could ever feel so dull, but I was unfortunately mistaken. There's almost nothing to gravitate towards here, and considering Blithe Spirit's source material, that's simply not how it should be. Sure, the production is absolutely outstanding (there's so much detail to the point that I'd say it's definitely oscar-worthy) but that doesn't necessarily save a movie from an uninteresting overall style.
Stevens (an underrated talent) is solid and does his best with this material. Dench is also pretty good but she (and I can't stress this enough) really needs to fire her agent (she went from Cats, to Artemis Fowl, to this.) I wouldn't say Blithe Spirit is a complete disaster, but it's easily one of the biggest dissapointments of the year (as of now.)
