    I cannot wait to rewatch this film in a few months, or a year. My brain is trying to frame a narrative but that’s just not what this film is meant to do.

    I’m as detached from the film as Morvern is as from her trauma. It’s a nice escape from my mind. I have to marinate with this now.

    My 2500th check, and it deserved that honour. The soundtrack is just absolutely amazing. Samantha Morton's performance in the title role is the best thing about the movie though, she was just fantastic. The rest of the cast too, for that matter.

    I have to disagree highly with the people in this comment section saying it's "boring" and "empty", and whatnot. It's a great road movie in my opinion, and just as many of the greatest road movies, this one is more concerned about mood and atmosphere than it is about putting forth a more straightforward plot. Which is not to say that things don't happen in the movie.

    An interesting response from a female writing/directing team to the Danny Boyle-style Scottish book adaptations. Good music, good cinematography, good performances combine to create a brooding experience, although the movie does meander and is not as visceral as the aforementioned Boyle efforts. 6 years 11 months ago
