Screenplay: Lynne Ramsay (based on the novel by Jonathan Ames). Twitter Capsule:Manchester by the Charnel House. Too bullish a showcase for its own serrated craftsmanship? Still: wow.
Ramsay's intrepid experiments with cinematography, sound, and editing remain vital even when they miss the bullseye. Major work from Phoenix, too.
