Some may find such wrenching realities shocking, if not reprehensible. Others may glean meaning in their starkness -- a meaning that transcends the film's despair with the power of its truth.

Ramsay's imaginative shot-making gifts make for a sublime result, creating a different sort of magical realism than we're used to seeing.

In any good film, the opening shot is telling, and Ratcatcher is a very good film.

Lynne Ramsay bears watching. But when we talk about advances in the art of movies we have to be talking about leaps of feeling, not just leaps of technique.

Ramsay tells much of the story through a series of images, each more marvellous than the last.

There's a light touch in evidence, balancing the bleakness with odd lyrical moments and unexpected humor.

Ratcatcher sears; it is hard to take, hard to shake.

A gorgeous blend of beauty and squalor, packed with imagery that will play over and over in your head for weeks.

The bleakness of the material ought to make Ratcatcher a depressing experience, yet Ramsay's power as an image-crafter transforms this grim universe.
