HEADS UP __ Af­ter com­plet­ing a some­what hazy mis­sion, in a sin­gle un­bro­ken take we see Joaquin Phoenix’s en­forcer Joe walk down the street, get at­tacked by a ne’er-do-well, only to plant the nut on him. It’s ef­fi­cient, bru­tal, and a far cry from movies like Taken. “We didn’t have time for big, bal­letic se­quences,” says Ram­say. “We were try­ing to set up the un­pre­dictabil­ity of Joe. You don’t know what to ex­pect from him.”
