RATCATCHER

    Part of 1999

    In her breathtaking and assured debut feature, Lynne Ramsay creates a haunting evocation of a troubled Glasgow childhood. Set during Scotland’s national garbage strike of the mid-1970s, RATCATCHER explores the experiences of a poor adolescent boy as he struggles to reconcile his dreams and his guilt with the abjection that surrounds him. Utilizing beautiful, elusive imagery, candid performances and unexpected humor, Ramsay deftly contrasts urban decay with a rich interior landscape of hope and perseverance — resulting in a work at once raw and deeply poetic.

    “Ramsay's imaginative shot-making gifts make for a sublime result, creating a different sort of magical realism than we're used to seeing.” —Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

    A trance-like, epiphanic child’s-eye-view of a hundred little things.” —Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

    “The decades have done little to wither the poetic originality that clings to the film like a diaphanous shroud.” —David Harris, Spectrum Culture
