    ★★★½

    We are alone. No matter what they tell you, we women are always alone.

    Three and a half stars? I'm as surprised as you are. Describing the work of Alfonso Cuaron as "note-worthy" would be a rather big understatement. From Children of Men to Gravity to Y Tu Mama Tambien, the man has shown over and over that he is capable of pumping out some of the best movies modern cinema has to offer.

    It's a beautiful day.

    I wanted to like this one way more than I actually did. From an aesthetic standpoint, You Were Never Really Here is great. I loved the cinematography, the editing, and the sound design. (And, for a film I'm not that big on overall, it might honestly have my favorite singular shot from a film released this year.) The score by Jonny Greenwood is solid. At times chilling, at other times atmospheric. Very different from what I've…
