Let’s start with the elephant in the room, the iPhone. In case you aren’t aware, the entire movie was filmed on an iPhone 7. Yes, a major motion picture was filmed on the same smartphone millions of people around the world carry around every day. So, the big question is if the movie looks like it was filmed on a phone. I would say no. I will admit it looks different and with the knowledge of how it was shot I could tell. That said, it matched the mood.
Unsane is about a woman who has run from a stalker and moved to a different town. Upon having what she believes is a simple counseling session, she is involuntarily admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Shortly after being admitted she begins seeing her stalker working at the hospital and isn't sure if he is actually there or if she might really be crazy.
Is it worth seeing? I’ll give a qualified yes. The movie was cheaply made at $1.5M and at times looks like it, but Steven Soderbergh’s direction helps pull it through. The qualification is how much is it worth seeing and is the theater a must. I would say it is a DVD film and should only be paid for in a matinee or with MoviePass.
