Of all the shorts and movies filmed during quarantine... Inside is without a doubt the best of all of them. [Full review in Spanish]
Aug 6, 2021
A true swing-for-the-fences achievement that makes elaborate use of its lo-fi trappings, straddling a delicate line between sarcastic mockery of cultural taboos and politically aware understanding of the times that are indeed changing.

He does manage to articulate the loneliness, self-reflection and depression of the coronavirus era more vividly than perhaps anyone else so far.
