A Decent Ghost Story
22 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An artist played by Harvey Keitel is finally receiving recognition from the art world. His agent (played by Beau Bridges) has arranged for a major showing of his work. As he celebrates with his wife (Sondra Locke, the wife of the great Clint Eastwood, who directed this), there is a lightning strike and a tree falls on the buggy in which they are riding. She is killed and Keitel lapses into deep depression, destroying all his work. He is now drinking heavily. The only remaining piece is that of his beautiful wife. Soon she begins to appear in various settings, but when he approaches her, she vanishes. This is a classic art ghost story like "The Mezzotint" or "A Portrait of Jenny." While it isn't terribly original, the acting is excellent and it's a cut above most of the other stories in this series.
