An oddly compelling film about an amoral yet oddly sympathetic heroine. Sam Morton continues to bring the crazy as a screen presence.
If her boyfriend had really loved her, he would've stuck around, rather than dumping the responsibility of his funeral and career on her and killing himself in a misguided attempt at literary greatness. Still, it justifies none of Morvern's lies, fraud or corpse mutulation. Even if she's in shock she's not a very nice or honest person.
If this a statement of feminist empowerment, then Ramsay has lost me. Still, it's oddly liberating to see Morvern strike put on her own and enjoy life, in spite of the wreckage she leaves in her wake.
The film also features Apex Twin's music back when it was still good. His most recent album was appalling.
