Unsane Trailer

Sometimes I wish I could just watch movie trailers instead of full length movies. You get all the good meaty parts without all of the disappointing baggage that sometimes comes along with the finished product. Look at this tailer for Unsane and tell me I'm wrong. Not sure how the end result will be but what a fantastic sense of claustrophobic paranoia has been packed into a 2:48 video.

Unsane tells the story of a young woman who lives in fear of a stalker and through a series of inexplicable circumstances finds herself committed to an institution where she faces her greatest fear - not knowing what is real and what is delusion. Working in it's favor, Unsane has the distinction of being the first movie filmed completely with an iPhone in 4K. Guess it's good for more than cute cat videos.

Less gimmicky but just as important, it stars Claire Foy who has kept my eyes glued to the screen for two amazing seasons as Queen Elizabeth in Netflix's The Crown. I think she is a star on the rise. She has to be doing something right because her next big role is Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in Spider's Web. If you don't know and I don't see how you couldn't, that role has been fearlessly played by Noomi Rapace in three films and Ronney Mara in a perfectly decent but slightly paler Hollywood version of the character.

Unsane directed by the wildly unpredictable Steven Soderbergh premiers the 23rd of March.
