Hey, it’s Garrett, and I’m definitely not a movie critic.
A few weeks ago, I signed up for MoviePass. It was $7.95 a month (now it’s down to $6.95 per month if you buy a whole year upfront), and I get to see one movie per day. There are some restrictions, but for the most part, it’s super simple. You use an app, you check in to the movie you want to see once you’re at the theatre, and your special MoviePass Mastercard gets loaded with enough money to buy your ticket. MoviePass is accepted at the Regal Cinemas in Lima, as well as movie theatres in Celina, New Bremen, Jackson Center, and Bellefontaine.
So, last week I saw the movie “Unsane“. It stars Claire Foy (she was Queen Elizabeth II in “The Crown” on Netflix) and Joshua Leonard (who was in “The Blair Witch Project“).
Foy’s character, Sawyer, is having a tough time in a new city. She talks to a therapist about her problems, and mentions that, yes, sometimes she has suicidal thoughts. But it’s completely warranted. She moved hundreds of miles from home because of a stalker.
After telling the therapist she has suicidal thoughts, she’s asked to fill out some paperwork. She doesn’t really read it. That’s a problem. Cause guess what it was? A commitment form. She’s in the psychiatric hospital for the next 24 hours.
But guess who just started working at the hospital? Her stalker.
I’m not going to spoil much more of the movie, just know that if you get a chance, you should go see it.
Fun fact. This is the first movie to be shot entirely on an iPhone. Every single thing you see in this movie was recorded on an iPhone. That’s pretty nifty.
If I hadn’t known the entire thing was recorded on an iPhone, I wouldn’t have noticed.
The acting was really good.
There are twists and turns and you’re never really sure if what you’re seeing is an imagination or real life. I was all about it.
The plot was a bit sensationalized. It’s a completely implausible scenario.
If you can put the negatives aside, and I understand if you can’t, it’s a pretty good flick. If you like thrillers, this is for you.
I’d give it at 6.9 out of 10. Could have been better, but was still pretty good.
