From the Archive: You Were Never Really Here (Lynne Ramsay)

On this week’s archive edition our focus turns once again to the cinema as we relisten to an honest and engaging conversation with director Lynne Ramsay.

For over two decades director Lynne Ramsay has blazed a path in her films from her debut 1999’s Ratcatcher to the subject of this interview, 2017’s dark and intense You Were Never Really Here.

‘You know there’s no money, time’s running out, there’s always this crazy energy and I think sometimes that’s just brings out the best ideas for me….I don’t think I’ve ever not walked on to a film slight y terrified and I think you should be slightly terrified’.Lynne Ramsey.

The director has worked with and brought out outstanding performances from the likes of Tilda Swinton in We Need to Talk About Kevin, Samantha Morton in Morvern Callar and more recently Joaquin Phoenix as an intense hitman in You Were Never Really Here.

From the Archive sees us dig into our extensive contemporary and classical music and cinema podcast archive as we rediscover interviews and discussions with artists, with our long-standing producer and presenter, Ben Eshmade.
