IMDb entry: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5742374/

"The entire, whippet-lean film feels like an experiment in impressionist condensation, as though Ramsay is testing the limits of how little she can give us, and how weird it can be, while still delivering a recognizable revenge thriller. It makes the things she excludes as present as the things she shows us, and sometimes the things she shows us are bizarrely brilliant flourishes. The brutal agent of retribution hellbent on rescuing an underage girl from forced prostitution makes time to observe the way a green jelly bean crinkles into white sugar crystals when crushed between finger and thumb. Joe shoots a man in the stomach and then slaps him in the face with his own tie. An airport drinking fountain flows with no one around; dead people are identified by the soles of their feet; a packet of Birds Eye peas serves as an icepack for the bruises blossoming on Joe’s shoulder."
