Disorder Review - AVClub

AVClub: How often does a film come along in which what the audience expects and wants is indistinguishable from the dark zones of a character’s subconscious? As moviegoers, we invest ourselves in a film, giving it our attention and ability to put two and two together, noting who said what to whom, who gave a suspicious look, and which close-ups seemed out of place in expectation of a payoff. Alice Winocour’s sustained suspense piece Disorder skillfully toys with such audience involvement, indulging viewers’ inner voyeur and giving them one hint of vague threat after another—a conversation, a newscast, a car that seems to be following—until they’re just itching for something really, really bad to happen.

The story is too old to be commented.
