A brilliant debut

7 years, 2 months ago at Apr 22 21:06
Lynne Ramsay's debut feature is a stylish, gritty slice of realism that is so strikingly shot you forget that you're watching a film. I wish I hadn't took so long to get around to seeing Ratcatcher, that is my only regret.

Description: Glasgow, summer, 1973. Dustmen are striking; bags of garbage add to the blight of council flats and a fetid canal. Ryan, who's about 12, drowns during a play fight with his neighbor, the jug-eared James.

"Why Another film I watched at night on TV in my room, Ratcatcher particularly stuck with me. One of the most dirtiest, depressing films I have ever seen but is realistic portrait of Britain and strong, natural performances make this film great."

" Director: Lynne Ramsay Its setting may be bleak – a deprived part of Glasgow during the 1973 dustmen’s strike – and its early sequences no less so; a child drowns in the filthy canal – but Ramsay was adamant that her feature-length debut was “not another grim film from up north”. What lifts the film above a predictable account of sink-estate misery is a perspective on its surroundings that finds beauty amid the squalor."
