Episode 121. Rueful Ramsay

The Patrons voted on what contemporary female director we should talk about and the winner was Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay! So today Alex and Jonathan talk about her films Ratcatcher (1999), We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), and You Were Never Really Here (2017). We discuss Ramsay’s very personal and close-to-home debut feature, the themes of adolescence and mortality, and alternative filmmaker financing structures.
