You Were Never Really Here (2017)

A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.

A pulpy plot is turned into a near-masterpiece of cinematic brilliance breaking down the narrative into optical puzzle pieces, creating a mesmerizing, if dark experience; on top of that, Joaquin Phoenix delivers a fascinating performance, and the soundtrack is a work of art in itself.
