Matthew Lickona 2:57 p.m., May 17
Oppressive vision of life in a Glasgow slum during a garbage strike in the Seventies, and particularly the life of a twelve-year-old boy with head lice and a bad conscience. Made bearable (barely) by the intermittent good eye of first-time filmmaker Lynne Ramsay, and by a brief fantasy of a mouse on the moon. The English subtitles for the Scots dialect (as in My Name Is Joe) are more a distraction than a help. 2000.
