Synopsis Ramsay’s filmmaking is impeccable and diverse, running from the prosaic to the stunningly poetic. She even takes big chances with shifts in tone...[F]erociously beautiful....For all the influences glowing dimly under its skin, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE remains its own bewildering animal, unmistakably Ramsay’s. -- Grade: A-[I]t feels as brutally stripped down as its anti-hero, a gloomy thug-for-hire named Joe, played by Joaquin Phoenix in what might be the most rivetingly contained performance of his career.3.5 stars out of 4 -- Joaquin Phoenix is simply stupendous in YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE. His performance is damn near flammable -- dangerous if you get too close.Joaquin Phoenix has never been shy about going big if the role called for it -- and maybe even if the role didn’t necessarily call for it -- but his performance here ranks as one of his best because of what happens between the outbursts.[I]t undeniably has moments of magic that resonate long after it finishes...[A] stark, sinewy, slashed-to-the-bone hitman thriller...As one would expect from Ramsay, the movie is immaculately well-crafted, with some lovely imagery and a few doses of dark wit...Joe (Joaquin Phoenix), a brutal and unshakable veteran, makes a living finding girls who have gone missing or been kidnapped. On a high-profile job for a politician, he discovers a sinister truth that could ultimately result in his death. Judith Roberts, Ekaterina Samsonov and John Doman also star. Based on the short story of the same name by Jonathan Ames, this film is written and directed by Lynne Ramsay.
