Podcast Episode: Unsane
I co-host a podcast that highlights movies myself and my partner believe to be forgotten by audiences. There are a variety of ways for a movie to fall out of the regular movie conversation amongst friends and families. Some films may not be that popular to a general audience. A film might be very good, but opened the same weekend as a monster Marvel movie and thus was kicked tenth side and ignored. And other times a movie will come out and then disappear before ever capturing an audience. That was a genesis of Forgotten Cinema.
This week we talked the Steven Soderbergh film, Unsane. Here's the brief synopsis from IMDb.com:
A young woman (Claire Foy) is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear - but is it real or a product of her delusion?
We go over a variety of topics in this episode, including the fact that this film was primarily shot on an iPhone 7 Plus. When I first saw this film upon its release a few years ago, I made a comment to someone or maybe even on twitter that I had no excuse when it came to shooting movies. If an award winning, world renowned director can shoot a film in 10 days on his phone, then why have I not done this?
For aspiring filmmakers and storytellers, check out this Forgotten Cinema episode and be inspired.
