Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/13/2000
"...A gorgeous blend of beauty and squalor, packed with imagery that will play over and over in your head for weeks....The most lovely debut in a long time."
Box Office - 12/01/1999
"...Spare and harrowing..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/01/2000
"...RATCATCHER is clearly the work of a natural film artist, and experiencing her debut is as much a privilege as it is a pleasure..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/12/2001
"...Ramsay creates a searing portrait of a boy in a spiritual trap. Pay particular attention to Rachel Portman's spare music score that in counterpoint offsets Ramsay's imagery with a presence that does not simply massage our mood..."
Total Film - 07/01/2000
"...The cast is packed with first-timers, who give wonderful, skinless performances..."
