Inside ★★★★

One woman hours away from giving birth is trapped inside her house by another woman. Everything about this has the intimacy of childbirth mixed with claustrophobia and increasing levels of gore as the night wears on. There's a feeling of the camera capturing one thing in the foreground while a blurry image of something else looms in the background that's reminiscent of Antonioni's "Blow Up". The feeling that there's something else there is also woven into the narrative because why else would one woman break into the home of another whose about to have a baby? It's like a shadow effect but rather than play it like that, "Inside" grows brutally violent to the point where it's pushing you to your limits. I can appreciate that but it was brutal.
