Andrea Arnold 2009

I liked it as much as I can remember liking anything in a while.  Very natural and fluid, not just in terms of the camera and style, but also the story.  The director is a rare kind of storyteller who leads you somewhere without making you feel like you’re being led or like the story was written specifically to take you where she wanted you to go.  I mean the story feels like it is happening of its own accord, without contrivance or dishonesty. The acting received much deserved adulation, not only for the breakout lead but also for the support. I loved the complexity of the relationships.  And there’s a scene at the end with that rare kind of filmic BANG impact that makes me love love love movies.
