You Were Never Really Here. Lynne Ramsay. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
There's two moments where Joe wants to die but keeps living cuz of a sense he can bring a small amount of light into one of America's infinite dark corners. It's beautiful, terrifying. Ramsay's otherworldly technical and aesthetic acumen shines, as does Greenwood's score. Also awesome: In a wild and grim dialog with Taxi Driver, the consistently jarring sonic shifting from quiet to loud, oh yeah and JOAQUIN PHOENIX.
