Unsane

What is up or down? What is left or right? Did the top stop spinning in the film “Inception”? Was she making it all up or did it really happen? I just don’t know.


Through this film Soderbergh brings the horrors of stalking front and center in a way that most people, even myself, might characterize as a woman that is dealing with paranoia. Is she, though? During one flashback scene the detective goes over the list of things she must do to keep herself safe from her stalker. That alone is enough to make any person insane.

Does the title subtly question how we might have historically defined this woman as insane? Full transparency, I just don’t know…

What I do know….that was a damn good film.

Any film that leaves you second guessing life or the conclusions we sometimes draw is a film worth watching. You are guaranteed to jump out of your seat and drop an F bomb or two.

From the desk of Dr. Metzger: 

What in the world did I just watch?

This was like a jigsaw combination of “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”, “Saw” and “Shutter Island”. First, I have to make a public service announcement. This is NOT what psychiatric hospitals look like. Everyone sleeping in the same room (all sexes), med techs changing meds, “solitary confinement” that looks like a Gymboree room…it was all types of wrong.

But once I got past all the inaccuracies, this was a good thriller. It’s not for the faint of heart so beware. Lauren and I walked out like “wait, what was that?”. The fact that it kept us engaged but also questioning reality shows that “Unsane” did its job. Go see in the theatre and don’t go alone…
