David Stratton Recommends

"Unsane" ('the iPhone film') stars Claire Foy ("The Crown"), Jay Pharoah ("Saturday Night Live"), Juno Temple ("Atonement") and Amy Irving ("Carrie" and "Traffic") in the new thriller by Stephen Soderbergh which was the talk of the Berlinale Film Festival.

Sawyer Valentini relocates from Boston to Pennsylvania to escape from the man who's been stalking her for the last two years. While consulting with a therapist, Valentini unwittingly signs in for a voluntary 24-hour commitment to the Highland Creek Behavioral Center. Her stay at the facility soon gets extended when doctors and nurses begin to question her sanity. Sawyer now believes that one of the staffers is her stalker -- and she'll do whatever it takes to stay alive and fight her way out.

 ★★★★ 'A raw, lean and abrasively effective thriller from Steven Soderbergh, which features Claire Foy as we've never seen her before.' - EMPIRE

 ★★★★ 'Made on a budget of only $1.2 million, it is technologically startling, classically composed, with rich still frames, wide shots and close-ups, more formally precise than many big-budget studio efforts.' -TIMES

'Unsane is ridiculously entertaining stuff, chock-full of schlock and fully committed to the atmosphere readily splattered into life by its bravura camerawork.' -  FILM ENQUIRY
