BAM welcomed Lynne Ramsay for a Q&A following the New York premiere of You Were Never Really Here, opening night of the retrospective, Tough Love: Cinema by Lynne Ramsay.

In a can’t-look-away performance of simmering intensity, Joaquin Phoenix plays a hitman dealing with PTSD and his own death drive as he sets out on a potentially life-ending mission to rescue a kidnapped girl. With tour-de-force editing and typically intricate sound design (including a bravura Jonny Greenwood score), Ramsay crafts a gut-punching thriller that doubles as a psychic X-ray of a scarred mind.
