International Trailer For YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE Hammers Home Vengeance

Joaquin Phoenix wields the tool like a real Oldboy.

Though it's been floating around the web for a bit, the international trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s (We Need to Talk About Kevin) upcoming vigilante thriller You Were Never Really Here (which got rather solid reviews out of the Cannes Film Fest) is now here to melt the eyeballs out of your face.

Ramsay’s reportedly brutal crime quickie (85 minutes!) also sports an original score from Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood, marking it as a must see for us. Since the movie has yet to receive US distribution, we’re crossing our fingers that its part of the next Fantastic Fest programming announcement.

I don’t know about you, but I need a smashy Joaquin in my life.
