Joaquin Phoenix channels the spirit of Travis Bickle in Lynne Ramsay’s (We Need To Talk About Kevin) bold and brutal thriller.
Phoenix plays antihero Joe, a former soldier and law enforcement officer who now works as a contract killer who specialises in the recovery of runaway teens on behalf of wealthy parents who don’t wish to involve the authorities.
But then he is given a new job, to recover Nina, the daughter of an ambitious young politician. Nina has apparently been lured into some kind of sex-trafficking ring and his employer wishes Joe merely to rescue her discreetly.
But when Joe uncovers a gruesome conspiracy, he finds both himself and Nina in danger.
Featuring a haunting score from Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, Ramsay's hallucinatory visuals and an absorbing turn from Phoenix, You Were Never Really Here is a stunning, gut-punch of a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
