You Were Never Really Here ★★★★★

This is how you do it. This is how you make a perfect film.

As you can probably see judging from my favorites list and just my film diary, I don't watch a lot of action/thriller flicks. For some reason they never really interest me or grab my attention. But once in a while a film will come out and blow me away, a few recent examples are Mad Max: Fury Road and Prisoners, but now we have You Were Never Really Here.
A film so ultra-violent, beautiful, hypnotic and that I literally sat with my mouth open wide for the entire 90-minute runtime. Joaquin Phoenix gives his best performance since Her and Lynne Ramsay hits it out of the park with this one.
Really don’t know what else to say, just that this is one of my favorites of the year right now.

This is flawless, this is brilliant, this is it.
