You Were Never Really Here: get a glimpse of Joaquin Phoenix' intense performance in new clip


Few actors convey intensity quite like Joaquin Phoenix. From Gladiator through Walk the Line to the more recent likes of The Master, he's capable of digging up levels of feral rage that are both compelling and disturbing.

His latest movie doesn't see him lightening up. You Were Never Really Here is the latest acclaimed drama from We Need to Talk About Kevin director Lynne Ramsay, and offers Phoenix another opportunity to dig inside a captivating, damaged soul.

He plays a scarred war veteran turned private investigator, who struggles to contain his inner violence when tasked with tracking down a missing young girl. The thousand yard stare witnessed in this clip should give you a flavour of what to expect.
