[Director Ramsay's] return seals her standing as one of our most fearless and forceful filmmakers, if not one as prolific as she deserves to be.

A film for the ages.

Ramsay has made a terrific short story, economical as hell but also so moment-for-moment gripping that you want to pore over its every shot, its every dark cranny.

You Were Never Really Here is a powerful assault of a film, but it's missing its director's inimitable poetry.

May 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Though such notes of grace make You Were Never Really Here stand out, they are few and far between in this otherwise grimly violent and willfully oblique film.

Ramsay has made more sensually rapturous films, but this may be her most formally exacting: No shot or cut here is idle or extraneous.
