Three Cold, Hard Clips From Lynne Ramsay’s We Need To Talk About Kevin

These three short scenes from We Need To Talk About Kevin have hard, saturated surfaces; are crisp, cold and sometimes a touch oppressive. And that, I believe, is exactly what they needed to be.

Too many plot details might spoil the film for you, but I’ll say that it’s a tense domestic drama against a tragic backdrop, and point you to Wikipedia if you’re still curious.

The film stars Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly.

The second scene’s off-kilter mise en scene feels particularly offset in comparison to the graphic, almost geometric clips that bookend it. I’d be interested to see how much of the whole film is shifted like this, and what other corners there are to director Lynne Ramsay‘s style for the picture overall.

Thanks to Flix for the embeds.
