Lynne Ramsay’s long-awaited new feature is a brutal, visionary adaptation of Jonathan Ames’ noir-tinged novella, with an unforgettable performance from Joaquin Phoenix. Joe is a hammer-wielding avenger on a quest for salvation, rescuing young girls who have been kidnapped into the sex trade. His latest case involves a senator’s daughter. Worthy of comparisons to Taxi Driver and ChinatownYou Were Never Really Here is a superbly crafted journey into the heart of darkness with a tremendous electronic score by Jonny Greenwood. GFF18
