I have mixed feelings about Steven Soderbergh’s latest thriller Unsane. I liked the way he worked his trademark indictment of the health insurance industry into the film’s story, which made it seem more realistic. On the other hand, the whole movie was shot on an iPhone, and the results are a blurry, dreary movie, especially when the scenes are shot inside the insane asylum. Everything seems to fade into the background. I found the movie suspenseful, but not scary.
It turns out to be an unpleasant movie about an unpleasant woman who is being stalked, or is she losing her mind? Whatever’s happening to her, she isn’t sympathetic thanks to her offensive personality.
Maybe if Soderbergh uses a newer-model iPhone next time, his movie won’t look so blurry.
Soderbergh is a good match for horror movies, because he has a realistic approach to them, which makes them more believable.
