  1. Ella Dawson-Gorton's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Strangely suspenseful, charming and empathetic side by side. Well crafted- camerawork that is pretty and grimy and emotional and unashamed of that.

  2. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    An unusual, unsettling and beautifully crafted film that takes its time in drawing us into the ambiguous and unknowable mind of Morvern. Ramsay makes full use of Morton's unique screen presence, a natural physicality that simultaneously conveys strength, vulnerability, childishness, wisdom and ruthlessness. Excellent sound editing establishes Morvern's disconnection from the world around her.

  3. Dan and Val Freeman's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    It's a rare film that gets better as it goes on, the first half hour feels like a pretty standard working class British film but then over the next hour it just gets better and better and better. Unpredictable, beautiful, challenging and some outstanding images and use of music - Morton and Ramsay are on incredible form here.

  4. 'king Harold's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Insert massive name drop here

  5. Yvonx S's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Arresting start, but found the film marred by the central characterof Morvern (played by the excellent actress Samantha Morton) behaving in ever more bizaare ways; one act in particular was hard to believe. Not really a road movie; didn't fall into any easy categorisation. Flashes of brilliance - some of the party scenes are incredibly close to life - but overall not fully compelling. Well worth a watch though.

  6. S's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Great acting. Great cinematography. Terrible (almost complete absence of) script and totally preposterous plot (what there was of one). Loved Ratcatcher; love Samantha Morton; hate that I wasted ninety minutes watching this meaningless self indulgent crap.

  7. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Ramsay expresses a unique vision and more than a little bit of her own identity in Morvern. Shots go from bleak and hyper-realistic to dreamlike that almost calls for the isolation of Antonioni.

  8. Tim Winter's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Still can't make up my mind if it's better than the sum of its - impressive - parts. Ditto Ramsay's latest...

  9. João Luís Ribeiro's rating of the film Morvern Callar

  10. keithinhull's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Good to see the brilliant film again

  11. Felicity Green's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Find the love for this film baffling. An intriguing first 20 minutes is followed by a series of implausible and quite boring events. Difficult to care about the characters. Mannered and self-consciously arty camerawork add to the sense of dislocation from the characters thoughts and feelings - perhaps the intention?

  12. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    A great film from Lynne Ramsay that is helped by a mesmerising lead performance from Samantha Morton, playing the titular role. After the suicide of her partner, Morvern at first appears to be in some major denial before making decisions that will take her on a very strange, and potentially life-changing, journey.

  14. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    This is probably one of the worst (and not in a great way) movies I ever watched on Mubi, dumb and empty. For the millennial generation (in general), this movie makes Sofia Coppola seems like Orson Welles.

  15. Ghostman's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Morvern Callar is an exceptional and exciting film by Lynn Ramsay. It's the first film I've seen by her & her craft is strange & singular; she is a born filmmaker & isn't afraid to not play by stolid film school rules. Samantha Morton is astonishing here and surely confirms herself to be one of her generation's great acting talents. (cont.)

  16. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    'I love it when you get to the quiet places'.

  17. G x's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    An incredibly alive piece of cinema from Ramsay, the use of light and color provide a hazy, poetic quality to the film. It can lurch from drab realism to a heightened, fantastical sensibility in a blink of an eye. Yet we are forever swept along, thanks in part to an incredible performance from Morton as the titular Callar, learning to stand alone, to dream, to be brave.

  18. Angelina's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    Just goes to show that you don't know what the everyday person you meet is capable of.

  22. mubianer's rating of the film Morvern Callar

    35mm (very welcome after weeks with digital). I have to think more about this before commenting more, but I loved it. And I can't believe it took me 15 years to see it.
