WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Variety by

A beautiful, complex work that challenges viewers to mentally sift interior and exterior journeys.

Village Voice by Dennis Lim

The Intruder, is a decisive breakthrough--her (Claire Denis) most poetic and primal film to date, as thrilling as it is initially baffling.

New York Daily News by Elizabeth Weitzman

The title might as well refer to the viewer who tags along on Louis' often-silent journey from solitude to some tentative form of family. Some will consider the experience insurmountably frustrating; others will find it exhilarating.

L.A. Weekly by Scott Foundas

For Denis’ film - which may be her most intricately constructed and intensely beautiful to date - is one that transcends words and stories, a movie to be felt rather than rationalized.

Salon by Stephanie Zacharek

Exhilarating and exhausting, the kind of picture you don't bounce back from immediately. Yet its elusiveness is the very source of its poetic energy.

New York Post by V.A. Musetto

So, should you see The Intruder? Yes -- but only if you're willing to ignore bothersome concerns about narrative and let the poetic images take over your mind.
