Searching uses the [screenwatch] style as more than just a gimmick, telling a simple but gripping thriller mystery with nothing but webcams and Google searches.
February 8, 2019
An interesting take on a well-worn plot.
February 6, 2019
Searching isn't a conventionally-told story, but it is absolutely a well-told one. It is compelling and intense and very, very good.
January 29, 2019
Bottom line: Searching is definitely one of the best movies I've seen in a while.

It does exactly what we would want any movie to do; it takes you for an emotional ride and never stops until the very end. All you have to do is just sit back and go along with it.

Chaganty has created a digital web of mystery and intrigue, as we are thrust into a missing persons case that engrosses with every twist, turn, and keystroke.

Searching for a smart take on the internet? Look no further.
January 14, 2019
While this style of storytelling has been used before in the horror genre (Unfriended comes to mind), it was interesting to see such an inventive manner of presenting a mystery/thriller story for the modern age.

It's this in your face low-rent approach that really makes Searching special,Aneesh Chaganty and Sev Ohanian avoid turning internet technology into yet another horror movie bogeyman.

A thrilling, unpredictable and riveting film

No fancy shots are required to show the true fear and panic of a desperate father. Searching is so effective we cannot imagine it being made under a traditional method.
December 22, 2018
An utterly riveting thriller that refuses to merely coast on the back of its potentially gimmicky setup.
December 13, 2018
Once Searching is over, you might be tempted to nitpick some little plot conveniences, but such things are easy to forgive when the viewing experience delivers like this.

Exciting and powerful. [Full Review in Spanish]

A kind of new version of Hardcore in the Breve New World of the internet and social networks. [Full review in Spanish]
November 12, 2018
One of the most original films I have seen in quite some time with just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.
November 12, 2018
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.
November 5, 2018
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]

This really is tantalizing stuff that elicits old-school thrills from new-school technology.
November 4, 2018
At a certain point, Searching runs out of ways to organically use its medium and the tension erodes. The first two acts, however, are engrossing and remind the viewer that John Cho should be a star.
