Critic Reviews for Unsane

All Critics (103) | Top Critics (29)

Foy owns this intimate, claustrophobic film, which at its heart is about the universal fear (especially for women, doubly so for ones seeking protection from manipulative men) of telling your story and not being believed.

By churning out a secret, no-stakes genre thriller with dirt-cheap equipment and malnourished production design, the director is living a reverse Ocean's Eleven: He thought he was out of the game, until the world's tiniest score showed up at his door.

Soderbergh is one of the most dexterous directors working in the American mainstream, and he has a sly talent for lacing even a seemingly disposable genre offering with smart, incisive ideas.
