Joaquin Phoenix seems to be reveling in this self-indulgent character study that’s both ambiguous and tedious. He’s some kind of hired hammer (which he uses instead of guns) who sets out to retrieve a young girl from sex slavery. But not before we suffer with lots of lingering personal moments and confusing flashbacks. While director Lynne Ramsay has created an elaborate display of technique and style, the experimental approach is more frustrating than enlightening or entertaining. The soundtrack adds another edgy element. This may appeal to hardcore fans of the bearded, burly Phoenix or lovers of unfulfilled weirdness.
