    Guillame Del Toro tweeted.

    Lynn Ramsey’s You Were Never Really Here. What a great film… Non-fetishized violence, gritty poetry and full of humanity. One of the best directors working -and a fearless actor by her side.

    Phoenix was protective with Ramsay, neither of them were fond of talking – see Cannes Press Conference (Youtube)

    Joaquin Phoenix and Lynne Ramsay follow their instincts to find ‘You Were Never Really Here’

    “We filmed this shot of me floating in this pool, and she just got in the pool with me, and just was there with me, right off-camera,” Phoenix explained. “There’s something about Lynne—she feels things very strongly. You’ll hear her breathing and making sounds off-camera because you know that she’s in it. But she got in the pool with me, and that was on the first day of filming! I was like, ‘Ah, I love this woman’ Vanity Fair . .

    Rooney Mara played the ex-wife in “Her”. Joaquin P. suggested to Gus Van Sant that she plays the girlfriend of the Portland Cartoonist.

    After River’s death, Van Sant offered him a meaty role in the black comedy “To Die For,” co-starring Nicole Kidman and Matt Dillon. It was Joaquin’s first role in four years.
    Twenty-three years later, Van Sant and Joaquin Phoenix are together again in “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” a film about the late quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan, who lived in Van Sant’s hometown of Portland, Ore.
