You may groan at the thought of another found footage desktop thriller, especially just a few weeks after an already-forgotten Unfriended sequel, but Aneesh Chaganty has managed to rejuvenate the genre.
Aneesh Chaganty's debut feature is one of the most exciting mystery films I've seen in a long time, and it's the first "cyber-thriller told completely from a screen" that's really convincing. [Full review in Spanish]
With clever and immersive storytelling, great performances, rich characterizations, surprising twists and ample amounts of food for thought, director Aneesh Chaganty has made a great feature debut with Searching.
Although I wish Chaganty trusted his audience a little bit more on the mystery side of the story, I must pay respect to a small thriller whose computer-screen gimmick actually elevated its subject matter.
Despite the story being less inspired than you'd want or the tricks not being as clever as the filmmakers would anticipate - the concept is a bold one, told effectively and pieced together with precision.
