Unsane Is Incredible Movie Made With An iPhone

4117

A young woman is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear but is it real or a product of her delusion?

Unsane” opens from the perspective of a stalker. We hear in voiceover how the object of his affection made him see the world in a completely new way. And make no mistake. This woman is an “object” to this man, someone who does not have her own agency or reality outside of what she can do for him. We will later learn that a stalker is a man named David Strine (Joshua Leonard) and the woman is Sawyer Valentini (Claire Foy), whom he met while she was caring for David’s father in his final days. He became obsessed with her because of the comfort she provided his father, and, by extension, David. In other words, she became an object that made him feel good and so he felt a truly one-sided connection, as they often are with stalkers. On the surface, “Unsane” is a potboiler, a routine stalker thriller. But it works because of how much there is going on within that familiar structure.

The main reason I watched this movie is that the entire movie was filmed with an iPhone and was curious to see if it was like another “The Blaire Witch Project – 1999”. Well, it turned out much better and really was a dam good movie!!! It really is amazing how well the movie was made and I hate Hollywood, so maybe this will open the doors to filmmakers that don’t have Hollywood budget behind them.

If you enjoyed this movie, check out this movie from Hard Candy – 2005.
