Lynne Ramsay Spotlight

Lynne Ramsay Spotlight

In this podcast, Curtis and I discuss the work of Scottish film director Lynne Ramsay whose most recent film was the chilling We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011) available on DVD and Blu-Ray from Oscilloscope Laboratories.

Ramsay has only made three features and number of short films but what distinguishes her from her peers is Ramsay’s internalized and filmic directorial style. Her films remove all exposition and conventional scene structures, becoming a sequence of moments that approximate the hyper-coherence of Claire Denis films.
