Ramona ★★★½

I am fascinated by the simplicity of this production. There is so much that isn’t explicit in the telling that I’m surprised it’s broken through enough where I can watch it on criterion channel. The subtly verging on neglect of the storytelling as you can blink and miss that she’s left a man with his mouth taped shut in her car at the start, or just the subtle inferences of a revenge-like nature by using a folder full of bloody images. Of course it’s interesting that the first 8 minutes is stitched to look like a single shot, and the whole film has 6 or 7 of these shots to get the whole thing across.
