THE BIG FINISH

If everyone is crazy you’re the one that is insane. Shot entirely on an I phone the premise of Unsane is both groundbreaking and ambitious. What is most impressive is that I would actually say the optics of an I phone lens adds to the story by providing this film a nice confined visual. The entire concept of someone medically fine trying to prove their sanity being trapped in an asylum while every one else thinks they are mentally unstable amuses me to no end. Claire Foy and Joshua Leonard are both brilliant in their leading roles. Jay Pharaoh is surprisingly good here although it is hard to take him seriously as I was anticipating him breaking out into one of his hilarious impersonations. Every movie is just a little better with Matt Damon. This film also does an excellent job of starting the conversation of corrupt insurance companies and institutions coercing people in order to gain profits. Conceptually innovative, this psychological teaser is an out of the box achievement.
