Review for You Were Never Really Here

Author: Baz

The way this movie was hyped up in the press about it being the Next ‘Taxi Driver’obviously raised my expectations and Phoenix being the Antihero ah-la Travis Brickle . Well, did I get letdown like a disappointed kid at Xmas when he didn’t get what he expected. If Phoenix won best actor at the Sundance Festival for his performance in this film. Then I’m decidedly in the wrong profession. He had a one dimensional character, very dark and not much else to him. The hammer being the ‘DIY’ tool of choice , which you never actually see it nailing anything. And there’s no real curiosity or imagination attached to the extent of him using the ‘hammer’. If you haven’t seen ‘The Professional’ With Natalie Portman and Luc Besson and Gary Oldman as a real lunatic cop. Then do yourself a favor and rather watch it. I was largely disappointed in this film and it doesn’t live up to anything it’s primed to. Not Memorable.
