The best of this year’s Cannes was a nightmarish thriller
About This Episode

Returning to the A.V. Club office after almost two weeks in the trenches of Cannes, film editor A.A. Dowd sits down with staff writer Ignatiy Vishnevetsky to talk about the best (and, as luck would have it, last) film he saw at the world’s most important film festival: You Were Never Really Here, a nightmarish noir thriller directed by Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Callar, We Need To Talk About Kevin) that casts a bulked-up Joaquin Phoenix in the unlikely role of a brutal hired gun.
