The biggest asset of any good artists is his/her skillset and passion towards their work and the desire to turn a limitation into a strength, and indeed, Steven Soderbergh has showed that if one staunchly desires to do something, nothing can stop him. He has successfully harnessed the potential of your favourite gizmo in your pocket- iPhone, to create a striking and affecting new visual dialect.
After his previous film- Side Effects, a psychological thriller exploring big pharma that followed a young woman (Rooney Mara) detained in a psychiatric hospital against her will. His new film, Unsane, is a psychological thriller which unravel the secret world of mental illness. This Film is a dizzying deep dive into the psyche of a stalking victim kept in a mental care facility against her will. For a long time, and perhaps still, mental illness has not been well understood. As public awareness of mental health has grown, however, and celebrities have spoken out (including Side Effects star Catherine Zeta-Jones discussing her bipolar disorder).
The story unfolds its layers that follows a young businesswoman woman (Claire Foy), who is an unstable bank employee named Sawyer Valentini residing in a mental care facility against her will, and to make matters worse, she’s pretty sure one of the orderlies is the man who has been relentlessly stalking her for years.
What makes the film unique is that the entire film was shot on an iPhone 7.
The quirkiness and lightweight manoeuvrability of the iPhone is used for some extra-ordinary shots of cinematography in the film’s most arresting scene. Things aren’t looking so good for our gal Sawyer near the end of the second act, as her tormentor has trapped her in a padded solitary confinement room with no escape. When Sawyer and the demon that just won’t go away finally dive into the explosive conflict their film has been building towards, Soderbergh goes handheld to get visceral 360-degree coverage in a tiny, claustrophobic space. Cutting as few times as possible to preserve the tension, he conveys the feeling of having nowhere to run and it gives the viewer an intense feel of being self- trapped as well. The amount of visual information that Soderbergh can force into the foreground is somewhat overwhelming, as the brain rushes to decide where the eyes should be drawn. Actor has very well communicated the mental interiority of a woman losing her mind.
Unsane had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 21, 2018.
