You Were Never Really Here 2017

Another impressive performance from Phoenix coupled with an artsy aesthetic makes this a work that you should see. I felt uncomfortable watching it, and not many movies leave me with that feeling anymore. It's also vague enough to keep you asking questions and dissecting it long after. I'll definitely be watching this again.

Extremely powerful and well shot+edited. However, this movie is not for everyone as it is not a point a to b type when it comes to story telling.

Unconventional thriller, as befits Ramsay's style, but not as good as I thought it would be. Visually great, but narratively weak, and it does fall on the side of pretentious at times. Still, it is a good film, and while I don't rate is as highly as some people, it is worth a watch. But hey, what do I know anyway? I was never really here!

Unfortunately, it was pretty slow.

Possible spoiler, I suppose?... It never quite hit a climax, like one would hope it might/would.

I thought that this film was really a gem. I really appreciated that we did not know that much about the main character and the director really slow-played our discovery of him.

"McCleary said you were brutal."

Joaquin Phoenix truly is brutal in this film. He gives a fantastic performance of this quiet and unhinged man for hire. Some beautiful cinematography and one of Johnny Greenwood's best scores makes this a beautiful watch. The editing is also amazing, what they show on an off screen really made the plot vague enough that we can fill it ourselves. The whole time while watching this I was uneasy but in a good way. Lynne Ramsay has another excellent film

"Joe, wake up. It's a beautiful day."

Hat erre kar volt ennyi idot pazarolni. Szerintem rossz. Nagyob rossz film.

I enjoyed this film to a certain degree.

The cinematography was very good, and the acting was really good, the pacing was on point and Joaquin Phoenix's character was very well written, he also delivered a great performance .

I know this is a film with a hit man and everything else, and that might attract the wrong audience, as people often seek and enjoy the escapism of violence in film, however, this film does exactly the opposite and tries to explore the reasons on why we are the way we are, obsessed with violence, or in this case, the reasons that the main character is obsessed with it and what built him to be like that.

Overall it was a good film.

Were they charged for the dialogues or did they have no budget for the writers? In passing, a governed and a senator in a pedophile case, little credible.

Considering how fascinating the first two acts were, the final one was really disappointing

The visual and audio design of this movie wil make you feel uncomfortable for the whole 90 minutes of playtime, but it's totally worth it. Joaquin Phoenix is absolutely amazing and his performance gave me the chills more than once.

This one will never be forgotten. Its richness lies in the silent details.

I found it interesting overall but am not ashamed to admit I also found it a little hard to follow exactly what was going on in places. Maybe it's up to the audience to decide? The details seemed murky. The movie tries to shock you in places and to be different. This is refreshing but may also lose its way in doing so. Regardless of the other plot details it's clearly a story of revenge.

I did not really find it that similar to Taxi Driver or Drive in terms of cinematography or soundtrack, the main similarity of course is the protective male loner type character. As with De Niro and Gosling, Joaquin Phoenix was powerful and convincing.

8/10

Saw it at the Fantasy Film Fest White Nights. I really like the ending, last 2 minutes

It's the story of a twisted man on a rescue mission, and he's driven there by his demons. Startling, passionate and intense, the film is a series of long, winding passages punctuated with exclamation points. "You Were Never Really Here" is the sort of film you want to applaud when it ends.
