    You Were Never Really Here

    ★★★★½

    What a beautiful day it is. One of my most anticipated films has finally been showing in Atlanta, and I got a chance to see it with my best friend Adam.

He is a master of dialogue, and Kill Bill: Vol. 1 combines his best in both characters and stylization. This is one of his most graphic films in terms…
