Just the case when a short description of the movie is not tell you about the film nothing. If you read it creates the impression that this is another movie on already pretty hackneyed plot - a big, tough guy on the coincidence is in the company's tiny, fragile, but a smart girl between them gradually fastened a tender and reverent friendship, devoid of sexual connotation, then you dozens of movies from Leon to Men fire.

When you start to watch the movie, then quickly understand that the plot in it is likely the screen or thread which consist of what is happening on the screen an audio-visual extravaganza. Yeah and details of plot no such a commonplace that if the main character in reality is a little boy full of fear and despair, which the unfamiliar ways of interaction with the world except violence, because apart from him, he saw a little something in your life, and fear the terror was the main emotion in his life with early childhood. At this this child have many years and he concluded in a huge, hairy mountain of muscle.

The greatest interest in this movie the technical component, how it is made possible in part was the irony of the author - to show how to turn the underside hackneyed plot with using the technique. Unusual angles and plans - the film is replete with aggression and violence, but virtually all of them remain nothing and we show only the consequences. An abundance of full aesthetic of frames and scenes. Unusual use of music as a sort of upside-down - here leisurely sleeping plans for new York accompanied, chilling compositions by Jonny Greenwood, and the most violent scenes occur under the cheerful songs of the last century, this technique in some scenes creates a sense that the music popping out on the foreground, leaving the picture behind. We should also mention the scene on the kitchen is closer to the end of the film, she impresses with its paradoxical and, as I think few people indifferent. He rhythm of the narrative becomes quite ragged, the effect that is limp and almost lifeless, then suddenly accelerated for a while, as if in an epileptic fit. All this together perfectly creates the atmosphere of nightmares or PTSD. Yeah and Phoenix with his role did fine.

The result is very specific, I would even say experimental film. I like it not all. If you want to get pleasant emotions from safe, probably better to choose what else. I thought it was interesting.

Modern cinema in recent times has only one function — entertainment. And another expensive blockbuster already does not cause those emotions has been ten years ago. Problem solves the independent film, which is not surprising expensive special effects or set fighting scenes, but brings much, much more. These pictures are able to tell a disturbing brain subjects, immersed in the fascinating stories of the characters or to draw Parallels with the real world. Of special note is the Arthouse, which is designed for a very narrow circle of fans, and the average viewer, with high probability, will cause rejection. "You've never been" refers precisely to this category of works.

The film tells the story already a middle-aged, ex-military Joe, who suffers from a mental disorder and makes his life, killing people on order. It another task is the salvation of the girl Nina, who landed in a den for pedophiles. But as happens the laws of the genre, something goes not according to plan. The synopsis is absolutely not conveys the essence of the picture, and all show events are only needed for in order to show all inner demons of the protagonist.

Joaquin Phoenix is the hallmark of the film. He has managed to create a lost, tired life but it is extremely hard character. On the whole picture in Jo's head break out the excerpts of memories of childhood and adolescence, forcing again and again to relive the terrible moments of the past. Ragged narrative adds even greater uncertainty, the the transmitting to the viewer the sensations and feelings of the protagonist. Almost all the scene in the movie (even the most absurd on first glance) is designed for that beholder picture felt all the internal state of Joe.

One of the key "You've never been" is violence. Why the hero is so cruel, and he became so, the viewer learns gradually. The fight scenes look so natural and scary that occurs involuntary desire to chill in the chair. This effect is achieved is not a similar demonstration of broken faces and broken limbs, and the original approach to the staging of scenes. Joe works for sure, but we only show the end result.

The atmosphere of tension and uncertainty that permeated every frame, makes the work of Lynn Ramsey in a great Thriller. The first forty minutes of time takes place in the absolute lack of understanding of what is happening and try to establish a causal connection. Then the picture starts to somehow emerge to the final leave-in mind one question: "What I just have you looked?" Not forget the film is "You never here was" — is a full-blooded art film, and so the viewer's brain will be abused again and again.

Special mention deserves the soundtrack — a tribute to the thrillers of the past. Heroes affect "Psycho" is not just like that. In both pictures the injection of terror happens to through music. But the creators of "You've never it" went even further, creating dissonance. For example, tranquil scene travel to the car immediately takes on a depressing tone, as only the case enters the penetrating party on the violin.

The main problem of the film was called have some times — Arthouse, Arthouse and more Arthouse. You need to be as prepared for this genre to have fun in viewing. In otherwise, all the buzz will be concluded only in subsequent thinking seen or not will do. "You've never been" very much downloads and drives the stupor, and in the end causes sleep. After watching felt physical fatigue and complete lack of understanding of what happened. Only thoughtful analysis of all the scenes able to restore order in the head. If you are able to understand cinematic language and like to deal in all that demonstrate the Directors of the Arthouse — "You've never been" will be the opening for you. In otherwise, better go away.

Light shock from unrealistic expectations, supported by positive feedback, high ratings and prizes, to see at least some reasonable explanation and goals that prompted the creators of this film.

I will not waste time to retell the story, the more so it is not exclusive not striking in its originality.

Stop at flow. The first half hour of watching the Director and screenwriter forced to watch tedious incomprehensible scene-scraps from the life of the protagonist, and also his childhood and past, which is supposed to reveal its nature. The question that arises and is simply pressing on consciousness: why am I have to spend your time in viewing is absolutely not fascinating scenes of trips to the store, walking on the streets and so on. Amateur stream sometimes much more dignified. But these half an hour I I amuse myself hope that so now begins the story of the author justifiably draws the viewer's attention to further the story and these scenes magically and Reasonably becomes those threads, all of which connects to one logical unit.

After quite a long time, there is at least some dynamics, and the author throws, it throws all your unmet needs to stand in front of the audience the author of "art for dedicated". Here you and disclosure of the plot and artistic presentation of the history of broken destinies and corrupt power, in all of which should give urgency and drama. Yeah, don't think I'm serious. This sarcasm!

The comments above reminded of the movies "Leon", Lie down on a bottom in Brugge". The first is a dynamic and emotional; the second — tedious-with mood-driven plot logic both are worthy.

Raise questions about the assassin-a professional with a hammer, again reception of the author? Joe, who flows freely in house for the Governor. All this — the dream of a madman?! Okay, all these shooting, chase, fights, explosions — for fighters. Here on the foreground there must be something else, more worthy of attention! To clarify-again, my sarcasm. Hysterical crying with tearing shirt off the corpse of a Governor who has killed the girl with a scalpel, and subsequently sitting at the dinner table, devoid of children's emotions, Cicada a fork in a porcelain plate with bloody hands, catching broccoli... That is a metaphor, artistic techniques? They should cause terror, to enhance the effect?! No, me-loss!!! All this kind of complete absurdity. That caused the film? The feeling of moral violence to me, as the viewer, cynical creators sociopaths with claims involvement the art and my account(time, attention, mood).

I wanted to write a lot more, but this movie is not worth it!
