Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Alessandro Nivola, Alex Manette, John Doman
Joe (Joaquin Phoenix) is a highly trained ex-soldier turned killer-for-hire, who still lives at home with his ailing mother. When a US Senator’s daughter is kidnapped, he is contracted to dispense with the perpetrators and save the girl (Ekaterina Samsonov). Plans, however, have a habit of going awry for Joe, and what follows is an escalating maelstrom of violence that ultimately takes him deeper into the hallucinatory darkness and closer to the truth.
With a typically intense performance from Phoenix and an adrenaline-soaked score from Jonny Greenwood, Lynne Ramsay's latest is taut, savage and destined to linger long in the memory.
