I found it to be very sympathetic towards those suffering from mental illness as a whole. This makes it easy for it to enter into my good graces, the tawdry pulpiness notwithstanding.

Long after the film is over, it's Foy's presence.. and her continued struggle to shatter the annealed visions of her past, that imparted a permanent impression on me.

Amid the kitsch jump-scares and heightened theatrics of Sawyer's battle, Unsane might be the first film in a post-Weinstein era to actually make people listen.

An unvarnished, scarily up-close-and-personal experiment with an enjoyably pulpy B-movie sensibility but also the thematic brains to back it up.

Force stems mostly from the intensity of Foy and Leonard's performances - he convincingly portrays a man with no idea how creepy he seems to others.

This is a film with a lot to offer, and a lot to distract. It is intentionally uncomfortable, but could have channeled that discomfort into a more focused way. The end result is that nothing feels finished, even when it is.

We have to be on our toes as viewers...the performances are wonderful, especially Claire Foy.

Soderbergh relies on familiar tropes to say something relevant and in doing so creates a tidy, satisfying thriller.
August 25, 2018
If Soderbergh can direct an entire film with an iPhone, anyone can.

Foy's fierce and occasionally funny portrayal of the character makes the film all the more watchable.

Kudos to Foy's performance and to Soderbergh's genius for finding the tenderest, most sensitive nerve ending and worrying it mercilessly.

Operating under sleazy genre guidelines akin to Cinemax's sexy heyday, the film remains salaciously meaty throughout, matching Foy's barnburner of a performance.

It's Soderbergh siding with the little guy over the establishment, and he's wonderful at it.
August 1, 2018
Unsane, at its core, is truly one of the finest thrillers out there in the market today.
July 27, 2018
Its quickness and cheapness, and its posture as a basic genre film, elevate it.

The plot doesn't hold up to a ton of scrutiny? Fine. But while it's moving, it's a heck of a ride.
June 20, 2018
Soderbergh has taken some potentially very taboo subject matters and given them a formally inventive twist and provocative narrative shell.
May 21, 2018
The fact is feels so real makes the scenario even more ominous.

Offering up a very different persona from The Crown's Elizabeth Windsor, Foy is a revelation as Sawyer struggles to stay sane and alive in a Kafka-esque nightmare.

[Steven Soderbergh] has a knack for making tired genres feel fresh and he brings that magic here.
