In Alice Winocour's sophomore feature DISORDER, the French filmmaker combines astute sound design with perceptive camera movements to externalize symptoms of PTSD, as ex–soldier Vincent (Matthias Schoenaerts, RUST AND BONE, AFI FEST 2012) becomes locked in a deadly game of cat–and–mouse with ski–masked home invaders at a wealthy estate, where he is the only overnight security guard. While creating a destabilizing, sensorial thriller about a male protagonist's hyperactive mental state, Winocour also takes a distinct stylistic departure from her debut feature AUGUSTINE, where she assumed a more classical approach to mental dysfunction set against a feminine historical context. The resulting work is bolder, with a topical narrative burrowed in irrepressible violence as a consequence of a divisive world climate.
