You Were Never Really Here (15)
Dir: Lynne Ramsay
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Alessandro Nivola
US, 2017, 90 mins
Joaquin Phoenix plays Joe, a disturbed man, hired to rescue the daughter of a high-ranking New York senator from a vile sex ring. A fragmented and brilliantly directed character study of a hitman which won the Best Actor and Best Screenplay awards at Cannes last year, this confirms writer-director Lynne Ramsay as one of modern cinema's most unique and uncompromising voices.
