[6.50/10] You Were Never Really Here (2017)

You Were Never Really Here (2017)

Quick Review: As vastly unsettling as its grimly surreal and every bit as ambiguous as its title implies, "You Were Never Really Here" explores some dark themes and the further darker mentality of its real troubled main character, played disturbingly brilliantly by Joaquin Phoenix, in a such a perplexing fashion, it leaves you rather confused, yet somewhat satisfied with its strangeness, which contrast drastically with the movie's simplistic tone and look.

Phoenix did have a couple years of practice playing disturbed. Remember that publicity stunt?

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Yeah. I've always thought he's a bit disturbed as a person as well. :)
