Your Quick & Simple Review: Unsane

A young woman named, Sawyer (Claire Foy) is involuntarily committed to a mental institution where she is confronted by her greatest fear–but is it real or is it a product of her delusion?

Billed as a psychological thriller, I was very much looking forward to seeing how this one was going to play out. After all director, Steven Soderbergh usually makes some pretty good movies, so I was hoping this would be just as good the others.  What intrigued me most, about this project, was the fact that the film was made using an iPhone 7 camera.

I liked the concept of the story, how a series of misunderstandings leads to some dramatic moments.  However, when those moments came about it was quick and not exciting as I hoped.  That’s the way most of the film was for me.

As far as the cast performances go, everyone was fine but I was pretty impressed with Jay Pharoah.  Although he had a small role, it was nice to see him doing something besides comedy.  I actually wished he’d have been in more of the film.

Overall Unsane is a decent movie, that I liked, but to actually use the words “thriller”… I wouldn’t go that far.  Which is why I, for me, this is Not A Must See Movie.
