You Were Never Really Here (Lynne Ramsay)

You Were Never Really Here

Lynne Ramsay

A hired gun who specialises in tracking down missing girls is caught up in the web of conspiracy. Lynne Ramsay treats violence (omnipresent throughout the film) in the strangest possible way: we do not see it unfolding, only the consequences. An arresting, hypnotic auteur film that garnered accolades in Cannes (best screenplay for Lynne Ramsay, best actor for a bedraggled Joaquin Phoenix).
