"Most of the thrills here come from watching one of our canniest directors perform rattling wheelchair dollies on a waxed hospital floor while over-punctuating video-noisy close-ups and cheesy music cues." -- Grade: B-
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (21 Mar 2018, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "With the entire film shot on iPhones, it would be all too easy to write it off as a flagrant act of gimmickry on Soderbergh’s part....But his creative decision for Unsane really nourishes the mood of nasty, queasy unease."
Dan Jolin (1 Mar 2018, )
Los Angeles Times
"[A] diabolically shrewd and spooky psychological thriller..."
Justin Chang (22 Mar 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "On the surface, UNSANE is a potboiler, a routine stalker thriller. But it works because of how much there is going on within that familiar structure, courtesy of Jonathan Bernstein & James Greer’s smart script, Soderbergh’s claustrophobic direction, and Claire Foy’s committed lead performance."
Brian Tallerico (23 Mar 2018, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "Foy, adopting a clipped American accent, holds the camera with fierce intensity as Sawyer Valentini, an efficient, tough-talking data analyst."
Peter Travers (20 Mar 2018, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "Stripped of glossy mainstream trappings, it feels experimental, urgent, and made for immediate consumption."
Total Film Staff (9 Mar 2018, )
Variety
"UNSANE serves as an interesting case study for the ever-expanding possibilities of smartphones in cinema..."
