Watched this movie without realizing that it's a feature-length film that was shot on an iPhone. Not as outstanding as other Soderbergh films that I have enjoyed, but it's pretty remarkable for that fact alone. I do think the film does a great job of taking a real-life fear and translating it to the screen. The stalker bogeyman is an effective one in the #metoo era. Not for the faint of heart---violent imagery in the second half of the film, although little out-and-out gore.

Defiantly not an earth shaking film by any means. A bit far fetched but was a bit entertaining. Not once did we think of shutting it off.

What we have here (apparently) is a work of psychological horror filmed on an iPhone by one of America's more innovative directors, namely Steven Soderburgh. Placed in that particular genre, and alongside other Soderburgh movies, "Unsane" is average at best. The lead Clair Foy does a yeoman job of carrying the story on her shoulders and thus aiding "suspension of belief" in the viewer. Some reviews below refer to the bloody/violent nature of "Unsane" thus making this film not for the faint of heart. An unexpected cameo by Matt Damon adds something to the mix, as well as Juno Temple playing a violent and disposable fellow patient (this viewer recalls her small roll in "Black Mass" where she is strangled by Whitey Bulger played by Johnny Depp. Trashy rolls seem the calling of Ms. Juno). Six and half on IMDb seems a reasonable rating for "Unsane."

Telephone conversation near the beginning:

My job is to access and interpret data to produce analytical results. I did that job. Taking your frustration out on me will not alter the results. You're quite within your rights to take your business to another bank. Another analyst may interpret the data more to your liking. But they'd be doing a bad job.

You say all the right things, David. Or what you think are the right things. Greeting card clichés and romance novel declarations of love. But that's not love. Love is giving yourself over to what someone else wants, even if it goes against everything you believe.

Well, rationally, I know that this is my neuroses colluding with my imagination to manifest my worst fears. I know that. But I'm not rational. I'm alone in a strange city, and, uh, I never feel safe. Not for one minute. So what do I do? Where do I go? Or maybe I just surrender and accept that this is my life. That doesn't sound like much of a life. No. Not one that I want to keep on living.

The larger the therapeutic index, the safer the drug. The smaller, the more dangerous. That's how I'd see myself spending my final hours. Testing drugs.

Yeah, well, my dad always said why would you trust someone to do a big job if they can't do a small one?
