We gave it a B+

In Lynne Ramsay’s trippy road-trip drama, the title character receives a mix tape for Christmas that couldn’t be more spirited: There are two cuts from Kraut-rockers Can (including the Uber-funky ”I Want More”) alongside tunes by such unlikely bedfellows as the Velvet Underground, Lee ”Scratch” Perry, and Aphex Twin. It’s a scattershot collection, but one that still finds a connective groove.
