You Were Never Really Here has the skeleton of a pretty cool, interesting film. Unfortunately, there isn't much meat on those bones and we're ultimately not given a well-rounded film. Much of it feels underdeveloped. Specifically, I wanted to know more about Joaquin Phoenix's character; we're given bits and pieces but I wasn't really able to form a full picture of the character. As such, I didn't really have any reason to follow him around for 90 minutes.
Jonny Greenwood's score is pretty incredible though.
