Lynne Ramsay

film 3 of 4


Film Review by Dean Duncan Mar 26, 2015

Dramatic details and cinematic craft, together with a real sense of lives as they are lived. Quiet, kind of shattering, the more so because it’s certainly not hopeful, bt it’s not quite nihilistic. This poor man finds himself in a predicament! So do these poor kids! Everyone acts as they might, not so well, not so badly. The hair-pulling episode provides an amazing seeming-climax, except that climaxes are a distortion in lives or classes where you must go on. There’s a long-ish tracking shot that features a bright-coloured, frame filling dress. Some photographer. Some director.
