Lynne Ramsay: Outsider Auteur

Our own Experimental and Fringe Film Editor Denah A. Johnston revisits the films of ‘Outsider Auteur’ Lynne Ramsay with a focus on We Need to Talk about Kevin. Johnston locates in Ramsay’s work a continuity of themes and aesthetics, with respect to bold cinematic image-making practices and soundscapes. Johnston raises the question of gender bias, with respect to a devaluation of Ramsay’s auteur status in comparison with her male counterparts.
