After all the hype that greeted Lynne Ramsay's first film, Ratcatcher,whichI didn't see, I approached this with caution. The presence of SamanthaMorton was my guarantee that it would at least be watchable, as she'sneveryet put a foot wrong on screen. And boy was my faith rewarded! It's alongtime ...
I purveyed the comments on IMDB before deciding *first*toread the book and then watch the movie. I think this wastheright move, and would strongly advise those so inclined todothe same. So, Samantha Morton may be the greatest silent film actressof the 21st century. Her muteness in "Sweet and Lowdown...
I haven't read the book of 'Morvern Callar', but I have read a couple ofother works by Alan Warner, both of which where distinguished by theirspikycharacters and irreverent tone. This film, however, is made by LynneRamsay, whose first work was 'Ratcatcher', a move both astonishinglyaffecting and al...
Samantha Morton stars as a "morally ambiguous" young Scottish woman whoseems to come into and go from her life and surroundings without theleast bit of effect from others or towards herself. I would almostlabel this film an Existential effort, but the main character, "MorvernCallar", DOES occasional...
I've read a lot of different explanations of why Morvern Callar acts ascrazy as she does (she's asserting her independence as a woman, she'sgetting back at her boyfriend for killing himself, she's amoral ornihilist, she's - as Robert Ebert thought - responding to classpressures).My take is entirely ...
The only negative thing I can think to say about this film is it'soff-putting title that almost prevented me from finding it. I am verygladthat I did. This film, from the first frame to the last, has deliveredeverything that I as a lover of cinema am searching for. From awell-crafted script, to e...
I looked at my watch quite frequently during Morvern Callar. I first feltimpatient during the opening sequence which seemed unnecessarily drawnout.I'm sure living with a corpse in a small apartment for apparently severaldays can't have been very pleasant as decay starts to set in.There are other par...
Morvern Caller is often described as impenetrable but I thought it wasquite straightforward. It's basically a dramatization of the alienationexperienced by a person whose behavior could be considered evil. Itsurprises me that more people don't mention this when writing about it:Morvern, obviously sh...
For me, the most notable thing about this film was the scarcity ofdialogue.It is a brave move on the director's part for sure, but for a film thattells a story of personal awakening (of sorts), the infrequent speechmeanswe can never be sure of what Morvern is thinking or feeling. We don't getmuch he...
Morvern comes home one day to find her boyfriend dead on the floor, havingcommitted suicide. In an effort to help her get over his dead, he haslefther a note, his money and his first novel - which he wants her to publish.Unsure what to do with herself, Morvern continues living her life,pretending s...
I'm a fan of arty movies, but regretfully I have to report this movieto be pretentious drivel. Agonisingly slow to develop a non-existentplot based on a promising premise, the experience is, shall we say,trying. Even after bad movies I feel that I learn something, or enjoyedsome aspect, but there th...
Strangely hypnotic and powerful film, loosely centred around a verystrange female empowerment narrative, as the suicide of her boyfriendleads Morvern, a quiet supermarket worker, to experience life forherself.Another great performance from Sam Morton, and Kathleen McDermott asLanna is a wonderfully ...
Back in the 60's, when trippy-drugged-out-art movies were popular, Imay have given Morven Callar more than just a swift kick to thetrashcan. Even then, I would have needed about three hits of acid justto be amused by this steaming pile of crap...As mentioned by Theo Robertson, the story consists of ...
I have to admit that I stuck this one out thinking something would haveto happen, besides the dead body in the first scenes... and herdisposal of him. I was wrong. It was a cinema verite of Betty hits theBeach encased for the first part by Mordant Morven. I really don't carewhat young lassies from S...
...is what her boyfriend wrote. The exact could be said about thisfilm, which tends to sink into art-house 'quicksand'. A challenge toour ability to adopt suspension of disbelief. A girl comes home to findthat her dude has offed himself, so she then dresses up, goes out for anight of debauchery and ...
Don't ask why. It just felt like the right thing to do, that is part ofthe brief suicide note that her live in boyfriend has left MorvernCallar (Samantha Morton). It could also serve as a statement bydirector Lynne Ramsay about her whole film. A complex, intimate andemotionally weird picture that in...
I won't summarise the plot as it is done so by other reviewers.This is a highly original and unconventional yet mesmerising piece and Iagree with many others that Lynne Ramsay is an exceptional talent, whopossesses a vision the likes of Guy Ritchie could never even begin toimagine.This is not an eas...
In this beautifully inane film, we get to follow the trendy, boring,Euro-trash anti-hero, Morvern Callar, on her pointless bohemianadventures funded by the serendipitous suicide of her novelistex-boyfriend. Samantha Morton plays Morvern with the perfect blend ofhedonism and apathy, and yet somehow s...
Scottish screenwriter, cinematographer and director Lynne Ramsay'ssecond feature film which she co-wrote with Italian-born screenwriterLiana Dognini, is an adaptation of a novel by Scottish author AlanWarner from 1995 which was shot on location in United Kingdom, Scotlandand Spain. It premiered in t...
Samantha Morton is a talented English actress perhaps best known forher role as the abused psychic Agatha in Steven Spielberg's sci-fithriller Minority Report (2002), but she has delivered award-winningperformances in many other films as well. One of them is Lynne Ramsay's2002 drama Morvern Callar, ...
i'm sorry, not going to go into detail, but i think this is one ofthose films that strikes people like a cobra or leaves people totallycold. i saw this movie years ago when it came out, i was a fan ofratcatcher and went to see this when it came out and was absolutelyblown away by it. i've recommende...
(spoiler)I say spoiler, though when a movie has no real plot or ending, it'sdifficult to spoil much of anything. In fact, the simplest way toprevent my spoiling this film would be for you to not waste an hourand a half of your life watching it.The entire story (a girl finds her boyfriend with his w...
There is an old saying "gratuitous nudity does not make up for lack ofideas". This is true in this movie. It starts with the lead lady cradlingher boyfriend who has just killed herself, and what happens for the restofthe film? A B S O L U T E L E YN O T H I N GI fail to see what others do in this mo...
Don't be misled by critics high on their own self-worth (sorry Ella).Thispoor attempt at filmmaking is flawed on every frame. Poorly conceived,poorly written, poorly directed, poorly shot, poorly edited with awfulmusicand the abuse of one of the industry's best actresses, Samantha Morton.Thisis an a...
About half-way through I fast-forwarded this movie for the remainder ofthe movie. Although I could not enjoy the soundtrack, the quicklymoving figures still portrayed the progression of the movie and added alittle humor to it. It appeared that there were many opportunities forthis film to become int...
