      ronald h I've always thought Mireille Enos was a pretentious actress. In this film, she plays Miranda Fall, a pretentious conceptual artist in the pretentious New York art scene. After she has a roll in bed with her married agent (Sam Shepard, in his last role), her agent looks out the window and sees a man attacking a woman in the street. Since it would be awkward for him to call the cops, she does, and gives them a description of the attacker based on her lover's recollections. Sound familiar? The exact same scenario was used in _The Bedroom Window_, a very bad 1987 thriller. Eventually, Miranda suspects that someone is stalking her. It could be a disgruntled man whose cell phone she found and turned it into a piece of conceptual art, revealing his GPS locations, pictures, etc. Pretentious New York art scene, remember? Yes, I know I've used the word "pretentious" four times so far. This movie has the fundamental problem of the characters being so pretentious (yes, five times now) that we don't care a flying flip for them. Therefore, all the suspense is sucked out of the story. This is a total loser of a film, unless perhaps you're a member of the pretentious New York art scene. This is the first review I've ever written in which I used the word "pretentious" six times. I couldn't think of any synonyms. Well, maybe "horse crap," but that's a noun. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Dragged on far too long! If I did drugs, might have enjoyed it! I could walk away, and come back. And still not find out what was going on! It could've been a 35 minute film, instead of the 2 hours. Glad I didn't have to pay. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Frances H A rather fascinating film about invasion of another's life and then having the tables turned. Miranda is an "installation" artist, who spys, without permission to do so, on the life of a man whose cellphone she finds, invading his privacy and every facet of his life, as though she has the right to take it over and make it public to all. The object of her art, whom she never sees as a private person with the right to that privacy, tries to commit suicide because his life is no longer his. And then, her private life is no longer her own. Her private space, her relationship with her dog, her secret affair are all out of her control, as others claim the right to interfere, just as she claimed the right to interfere in her subject's life. Her affair, her deception to the police to keep her secret lover secret, are exposed and one by one her dog and both of her lovers are taken away from her. She becomes obsessed with a man she thinks is interring in her life, and invades HIS space, but we never find out if she is right or wrong. In the end, her fears have put her on the outside of her own life, until even her private space is gone, and it is as if she was "never here." Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/20/18 Full Review Audience Member I loved the feel and performances in this movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review nefasto r I think at the end I did understood the film: it's bad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I think I've got the gist of the film: was bad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Peter Bradshaw Guardian A disquieting and mysterious mirage of a film. Rated: 4/5 Sep 20, 2018 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety Though it drifts off into the ozone at the end, for most of its running time, "Never Here" is a low-key but effective psychological thriller which flirts with that looming issue of the social-media age: privacy, and the invasion thereof. Oct 20, 2017 Full Review Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times Artful and atmospheric to the max, "Never Here" is a study in personality disintegration dressed up as a whodunit. Oct 19, 2017 Full Review Andrew Murray The Upcoming There may be some viewers willing to find meaning in the various puzzles Theron puts on screen, but the rest of us will be far too disinterested to care by the time the credits roll. Rated: 2/5 Feb 18, 2021 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension There's a lot about the plot (for lack of a better word) of Never Here that I can't be quite sure about, in fact, though that's far from a complaint. It becomes harder to see the deeper into the blackness you go. Dec 11, 2020 Full Review Rosalynn Try-Hane Liquid Marmalade Never Here is a psychological thriller for the social media age with a great mix of tension, imagery and cinematography.
