"YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE is a bold piece of storytelling, with a dream-like feel that evokes its hellish, predominantly nocturnal world very compellingly." - Jonathan Romney, Sight and Sound

"It's a mesmerizing illustration of [Ramsay's] ability to treasure small gestures and whispered exchanges over exposition to construct a tapestry of alternately gripping and melancholic emotions." - Eric Kohn, indieWire
