You Were Never Really Here (15)

Drama, Mystery, Thriller

A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.

The critical consensus

The elliptical style may add to the sense of mystery but it also leaves far too many questions unanswered.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 07/03/2018

Lynne Ramsay returns with a scuzzy, stripped-back thriller focused on the man, rather than the mission.

****(*)Jordan Farley, Total Film, 05/03/2018

Dark, disturbing and difficult, this is a deep dive into a troubled headspace and never lets you leave. Ramsay is now four for four, one of our most exciting filmmakers. If she could not leave it so long next time, that’s just fine with us.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 06/03/2018

An instant classic with multiple dimensions.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 09/03/2018

From the disorienting opening to the enigmatic finale, Lynne Ramsay is always really here, her commanding vision shining through every frame.
