About the Movie
Academy Award®-winning director Steven Soderbergh plunges audiences into the suspense and drama of a resilient woman’s fight to reclaim her freedom even as she risks her own sanity. Still scarred from the trauma of being terrorized by a stalker, Sawyer Valentini (Claire Foy, The Crown) receives treatments at the Highland Creek Behavioral Center. However, shortly after she unwittingly commits herself to the mental institution and is unable to leave, she catches sight of a facility staffer who, she is convinced, is actually her stalker. But is he real or a production or delusion?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Above all, he revels, with palpable joy, in his repertory of distorted, disturbing, lurid yet lucid images, making a furious movie that signifies nothing but the irrepressible vitality of the cinema itself. Soderbergh's experiment is a success.
Rotten: A serious movie about mental disorder and the insurance business would be ten times clammier and more disturbing than "Unsane."
Fresh: Foy owns this intimate, claustrophobic film, which at its heart is about the universal fear (especially for women, doubly so for ones seeking protection from manipulative men) of telling your story and not being believed.
Fresh: Through it all, Claire Foy kills. In more ways than one.
A moody mind trick for the senses well crafted on iPhone. It’s all in her head just like the rest of us. Or is it? Without that which comes from our mind, our daily habits and the vices that sometimes fuel them, could not come to fruition. Relationships good and bad often leave us wanting for more of it regardless of the intended consequence. Hmm? Go see it!
Unsane is a triller directed by Steven Soderbergh about a woman who involuntarily signs her self into a mental institution. As she’s there she realizes her stalker from the past is there. I was interested in Unsane ever since I saw the first trailer. I liked Contagion, same director, so I was intrigued. What was very unique about this movie is that it was all shot an an iPhone 7 Plus. The cinematography felt weird at first but I got used to it. Claire Foy as Sawyer was great. I liked her character and felt frustrated for her the whole time. Most of the other people in the movie did well too. Jay Pharaoh was one of my favorite characters. He brought some comic relief which helped in the movie for it being very frustrating. Now this movie wasn’t perfect. It definitely had its issues. First off the cinematography took away from the movie sometimes which bothered me. I really didn’t like the score for the movie. It was in between being tense and had a pop song kind of feel too. The movie wasn’t the most original idea so some of it could be predictable. This won’t make any sense to anyone who hasn’t seen the movie, but the final shot was horrible. The whole ending scene was just a little off. But the last shot of the movie was really odd. The exposition for Sawyer’s character was one of my favorite scenes, but it came late in the movie, so until then I didn’t feel as much for her character. I felt for her character but it wasn’t until we found out her backstory that I truly felt for her. There was also a long period in the movie where I thought it was the third act or almost to the third act, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t slow or anything I just thought that the movie was getting close to some higher action. Other than that, I enjoyed Unsane. It’s not a must see but it was a descent movie.
My Grade: B-
I recommend it...lots of twists and turns! Being shot on an iPhone didn’t distract me one bit👍🏾
