Starring Diane Kruger and Matthias Schoenaerts, this suspense-thriller arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on the 25th July.
Disorder follows, Special Services soldier Vincent (Schoenaerts) who takes a job in security for a wealthy Lebanese businessman and his family.
But during a party at his villa one evening, he realises that something is wrong. But his employer is called urgently away on business and it is left to Vincent to ensure the safety of his wife (Diane Kruger) and child, made the more difficult as Vincent suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, meaning that his paranoia is potential additional obstacle.
The film is directed by French director Alice Winocour, and takes audiences on a journey through Vincent’s flawed but heroic character’s mind.
Here is what critics have said about the film:
The Guardian: *** “With early hints of both Sliver and Someone to Watch Over Me,Disorder (originally entitled Maryland) develops into something more intriguing thanks in large measure to a brilliant expressionist soundtrack by Mike Lévy.”
Variety: “Winocour has the gift of instilling fear at a range of tempos; it would not be a surprise if genre-inclined producers in English-speaking territories took notice.”
Empire: **** “Director-writer Alice Winocour’s simmering thriller/character study is like a Transporter film directed by Chantal Akerman.”
Time Out: *** “it doesn’t have enough atmosphere to compensate for the lack of action.”
Independent: ** “The action sequences, like everything else in the film, are extremely stylishly shot but there is so much posturing going on that the film is utterly shorn of drama or tension.”
Consequence of Sound: “the combination of Schoenaerts’ intensely brutish, sensitive performance and Winocour’s singular dedication to tension gives Disorder plenty to offer.”
The Skinny: *** “Alice Winocour’s suspenseful work borrows stylistic cues from modern ‘quiet, quiet…BANG’ horror films, but uses the common understanding of these tropes to create a sense of claustrophobia and high stakes in this psychological thriller.”
Disorder is released on DVD and Blu-ray on the 25th July.
