  2. Aardsy's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  3. Aaron C Jones's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    James's sensitivity, juxtaposed with his dirty little secret... The scene in the wheat field is great. I was cracking up at the "proper English" subtitles, and how much they differed from the actual spoken dialogue.

  4. Pancho Legaspi's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    demasiadas capaz de basura y belleza

  5. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    There's almost a dreamlike quality to Lynne Ramsay's film, despite dealing with poverty, and in this instance it's poetic.

  6. nadnab's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  7. Siniestro's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  8. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    4.6 stars. Impressionistic kitchen sink realism. Puts your mind, body and soul through the wringer. 'Crime and Punishment' from a child's eye view. The clearest experiential explanation of what space and place mean to us as humans and how they can both hurt and enrich us. Beautiful and brutal with a very clear-eyed understanding of the mechanics of poverty and childhood. Read Annette Kuhn's BFI book on the film.

  9. Ethan's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    This is a powerful film that has some stark images and a lot of harsh reality that feel like a perfect blend of Bunuel's Los Olivadados and Truffaut's 400 Blows but it is all the brilliance of Lynne Ramsay presented on the screen as she crafts a beautifully haunting tale of childhood.

  10. Absentia's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  11. Diego Ravazzolo's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Stunning cinematography, shows very well the wet and cloudy climate that surrounds this low-class neighborhood of Glasgow. A young boy struggling against his very own guilt... heartbreaking stuff.

  13. joshuagordon's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  14. blkrchs's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  15. Maria Salomia's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  16. callum mclaughlin's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Observing the trapped nature to a rat-infested living scheme, where prosperity is but a pipe dream, 'Ratcatcher' finds the genuine beauty in day-to-day interactions in a truly fantastic film that plays our childhood memories back to us on screen. A wonderful blend of hard-hitting realism and childlike fantasy interwoven. And so it's a shame that the ending, although narratively great, fell a bit flat and felt rushed.

  17. Max Swanson's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Brilliant, lyrical, heart-shattering filmmaking and one of the best feature debuts in modern film history.

  18. Trailblazer, LLC.'s rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Always worthy cinematography in a Ramsay flick.

  19. Vincent Balcer's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Très particulier. Un film difficile et pas forcément plaisant à regarder mais dont on se souvient.

  20. Nachtreich's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  21. MistaRichard's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    At this point it's not even about wanting more films from Lynne Ramsay; I NEED THEM. Watched this one after seeing it mentioned time and time again by Barry Jenkins. I had to see what it was all about: and it is BEAUTIFUL.

  22. Philippe P. Marchetti's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Had the chance to meet Lynn Ramsey in NY. Not the biggest fan of hers but this one is a must see.

  23. FISCHER's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Constat froid et précis, d'une étonnante sobriété visuelle et narrative, sans misérabilisme ostentatoire, qui décrit une enfance en marge, dans un contexte économique et social souvent déplorable qui laisse pourtant la porte entrebâillée à de possibles émancipations d'une misère relationnelle jamais inéluctable ni définitive. www.cinefiches.com
