5.0 out of 5 stars Whose fault was it anyway?, 13 Jan. 2012
This review is from: We Need To Talk About [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Not having read the Lionel Shriver novel on which this film is based, I went in with foreknowledge about nothing except - as is often the way - the story's concluding revelation. Still, this didn't detract from what turned out to be a moving, unsettling, deeply visceral cinematic experience. Tilda Swinton is consistently excellent as the mother of an odd teenage son whose behaviour casts a deep shadow on the life of her whole family. And Lynne Ramsay's directing unashamedly turns the entire film into an exercise in subjective story telling, a move that's entirely appropriate for a story in which different points of view and individuals' perceptions of events have a direct bearing on the development of the plot. Psychologically astute and totally mesmerising.

I have read the book, and I highly recomend it. It's most thought provoking. Really makes you think. Would I notice the signs, what would I do?

Jax, thank you. It's definitely on my 'must read one day' list.
