We Need to Talk About Kevin

We Need to Talk About Kevin ★★★★½

One of the most masterful depictions of mental illness i’ve seen in film, capturing with neglect the obvious steps to a full blown attachment disorder: from the initial separation of mother and child — to the materialistic clingings he develops with age (tiny shirts, bows)— down to the manipulative behavior he exhibits and excels at to the very end. 

Ramsay seems to follow and exemplify at every turn, Trust Vs. Mistrust: the first of Eriksons psychosocial stages. And damn, she does it well. 

Also... probably the worst movie to ever watch on mothers day lol.
