Ghostbusters review

A classic celebrates its 30-year birthday

A welcome one-day-only 30th anniversary re-release for Ivan Reitman’s blockbuster comedy. Half- Saturday Night Live , half-Industrial Light & Magic, its elements dovetail into a kid-scaring, adult-amusing and consistently entertaining adventure.

The elastic structure provides ample room for inspired surrealism, yet the looseness never compromises the film’s tongue-in-cheek love letter to pre-gentrification Manhattan or its piercing satire of Reaganite go-getting, as nuclear-powered private enterprise triumphs over snobby academics and mad Sumerian deities.
