Prime Video movie of the day: You Were Never Really Here is incredibly stylish and deeply disturbing

Empire magazine’s description of You Were Never Here as “dark, disturbing, and difficult” may well be an understatement. Indeed, this crime drama flick, which is one of thousands of movies you can stream on Prime Video, aka one of the world’s best streaming services, was a smash hit with critics but proved deeply divisive with audiences. How so? Mostly because it’s a really hard watch. 

For the uninitiated: based on Jonathan Ames’ 2013 novel of the same name, it’s a tale of a contract killed (played by Joaquin Phoenix) hired to rescue a young girl (Ekaterina Samsonov) from a brothel. Oh, and he needs to kill everyone else in said location.
