You Were Never Really Here ★★★★★

“it’s okay, joe”

as i’ve been solidifying my 2018 favorites list the past few weeks, this has been at the back of my mind every day. i saw something in it the first viewing, but i didn’t exactly connect. sometimes revisiting something, even something you already love, makes it click. your mood has to be right, and your timing. like things perfectly align so what once felt hazy in comparison is now clear. now i understand, and now i can see. and what i see is beautiful 

in my perfect world, lynne ramsay would win best director for this. but she probably won’t, and it’s okay
