Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Alessandro Nivola
Joaquin Phoenix gives an unforgettable performance in the brutal, defiant new film by uncompromising British filmmaker Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin). He is Joe, a Gulf War veteran turned assassin who is tasked with retrieving US senator’s daughter Nina (Ekaterina Samsonov) after she’s kidnapped by a child sex ring. Aided by remarkable imagery and Jonny Greenwood’s superlative score, Ramsay focuses on the complex psychology of her protagonist, crafting a devastating portrayal of a man wrestling with years of abuse as he embarks on new acts of violence. Lean and rigorous; a cinematic masterclass.
