: : : Morvern Callar
===Story=== Eerie, morbid, yet somehow life-affirming, ''Morvern Callar'' stars the superb Samantha Morton (''Sweet and Lowdown'', ''Minority Report'') as the title character, a young Scottish woman whose boyfriend has just killed himself, leaving behind a cassette of assorted songs and an unpublished novel. Instead of reporting his death, Morvern puts her name on his novel before sending it off to a publisher, then uses the dead man's bank card to pay for a trip to Spain with her friend Lana (Kathleen McDermott), where she tries to lose herself in sensation and chaos. The events of ''Morvern Callar'' suggest a story, but director Lynn Ramsay (''Ratcatcher'') focuses on moments of ambiguity and ambivalence in between the dramatic action--and when Morvern does take decisive action, her choices are unnerving. The movie's striking images and rich use of color vividly capture a dislocated state of mind, when life has come unmoored from meaning.
