A stark portrait of trauma.

Worth watching even though it doesn't fully cohere beyond its well-executed tone.

May 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Opaque and formally ungainly, this itchy meditation on a host of contemporary social ills offers audiences a vividly, deliberately ugly worldview, but finally makes for hollow viewing.

As the tension builds to its harrowing conclusion, and Alex begins to bare his teeth, Mathews pulls enough tricks from his sleeve to make Discreet a worthy digression.

Despite the disturbing subject matter and matter of fact way in which it is dealt, it's hard not to search for deeper meaning when coming face to face with a character so believably broken beyond belief.

A disturbed loner begins to unravel in this contemplative thriller that's less interested in conventional thrills than in drawing viewers into the protagonist's off-kilter world view.
