This is why we go to the movies---Quality cinema is hard to find. You can usually sniff it from the opening titles and in this instance that is very true. Exceptional writing, acting and art direction all combine to deliver a feast for the senses and take you on an absorbing emotional ride which sticks with you long after. The film has been compared to Taxi driver but it put me in mind of (the original) Get Carter. Phoenix's performance holds the same gravity as that of Caine and the narrative is similar. There were moments of pure Tarantino style brilliance - (I've Been to paradise) and the choice soundtrack was obviously carefully thought about. Highly recommend if you can deal with the violence.

Waste of time---Don't waste your time on this moronic tripe. This film had potential yet threw it away. It feels like a poor imitation of a Yorgos Lanthimos film, anything that pleases the critics hey.Its only saved from 1 star due to the fact that it is visually pleasing to watch and has a decent score to go with it.

Dark, intense and immensely gripping; as discreet as it is devastating.---'You Were Never Really Here (2018)' is a dark, disturbing but discreet piece, one that's as off-kilter and uncomfortable as it is subdued. It's this remarkable restraint that allows its undercurrent of explosive violence, seedy deviance and childhood traumas to be all the more shocking and genuinely effecting when they erupt from the relative calm on the screen. It's an amazingly atmospheric and difficult watch that doesn't hold your hand, so that if you aren't always fully engaged then you may not wholly grasp the almost exposition-less plot. The explicit, brutally jarring flashes of a past narrative paint a picture of an incredibly wholistic implicit story, without filling in every blank, in an incredibly gripping way, leaving you to wallow in the head of a severely damaged individual and think about the experience for long after the credits have rolled. 8/10

You Were Never Really Here, simply put, is a stunning piece of cinema.---Warning: this review will excessively use the adjective "phenomenal". Phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal. Phenomenally directed, acted and written. This phenomenal indie thriller will leave you breathless. An incredibly rare achievement to leave me hypnotised long after the credits roll, but Lynne Ramsay's latest intrusive yet intimate character study did that and then some. Centralising on Joe, a war veteran suffering from PTSD, who accepts a job to retrieve a politician's kidnapped daughter from a brothel. However in doing so, he risks the safety of his mother and his own life. This showcases Ramsay's supremely defiant directing style. Every scene, every camera movement and every little detail is a finely tuned mechanism to a large machine. The entire picture exudes confidence, such bold directing choices that elevates this above other indie titles. The visceral violence and bleak events that occur create several thrilling moments, but the palpable tension is illustrated through the character of Joe. A damaged man addicted to pain killers to deal with his hallucinogenic illusions that tamper with his sanity. Ramsay's screenplay never belittles him into an unlikeable state, the behests he accepts actually retains his humanity whilst portraying the excessive violence. All phenomenally played by Joaquin Phoenix who many consider to be one of the best actors working today. With this, I completely agree. Dialogue is kept to a minimum yet the amount of expression just from his face and body language was phenomenal. Jonny Greenwood's unsettling and intrusive score only adds to the heightened state of mind that the narrative conveys. Just utterly enthralling. My eyes never left the screen once. The ambiguous ending was the icing on the cake, solidifying its indie origins. Beautiful and horrific simultaneously. A perfect juxtaposition that illustrates the themes and technical talent conveyed through this phenomenal film. It gets the second perfect rating of the year. Cannot recommend this enough.

Tried so hard but failed---What a shame. Quite stylish. Great camera shots. But that alone does not make a good film. It's boring and frustrating. So much effort was put into trying to make it look stylish but it was boring, slow and lacking in story and dialogue.Throughout the film the emphasis is on style and cinematography and a lot of the shots are quite impressive but it's not clever or captivating. It's boring.

It s a mesmerizing illustration of [Ramsay s] ability to treasure small gestures and whispered exchanges over exposition to construct a tapestry of alternately gripping and melancholic emotions.

Ramsay has made more sensually rapturous films, but this may be her most formally exacting: No shot or cut here is idle or extraneous.

Though such notes of grace make You Were Never Really Here stand out, they are few and far between in this otherwise grimly violent and willfully oblique film.

You Were Never Really Here is a powerful assault of a film, but it s missing its director s inimitable poetry.

Ramsay has made a terrific short story, economical as hell but also so moment-for-moment gripping that you want to pore over its every shot, its every dark cranny.
