Morvern Callar

2001 United Kingdom, Canada

Morvern Callar explores how grief can change the way we see the world and ourselves in it. Ramsay has crafted a film that takes us on a seemingly free-flowing and unexpected journey with Morvern, the secretly bereft protagonist. Through her eyes, we discover a haptic and beautiful world that’s delicious to be in. Each frame feels deliberate, infused with a unique tone, as comedy and tragedy dance around its edges.

Days of Heaven

1978 USA

The quality of light, the romance, the playful and unexpected voiceover from Linda Manz and young Richard Gere with his eyes close to the lens. Days of Heaven creates an unparalleled cinematic scale. The sound design is also wonderful.
