The Intruder

The Intruder ★★★

There's Room for Both of Us.
Dark and unsettling, The Intruder is a paranoia fuelled thriller following a voice artist's mental wellbeing after a sudden traumatic event.
Érica Rivas plays Inés who gives a tormented performance as the lines between fact and fiction blur as she begins to hear voices which threatens her career and lifestyle. This psychological thriller really pulled me in with clever and subtle tricks of the mind but as it approaches the final act it gets a little bit carried away and loses its footing - though the end credits scene is still remarkably memorable.
Natalia Meta really impressed me with the direction and style, the sound design and camera work throughout is incredible. Also, bonus points for dropping the title card 20 mins in.
Where it may not have hit the mark, The Intruder is still a wondrous and unnerving delve into isolation and paranoia.
