Five years ago, Steven Soderbergh directed what he’d said would be his cinematic swan song. Side Effects, ostensibly about a woman who reacts quite poorly to some medication she was prescribed by a sweaty British doctor, was a nasty piece of work that featured one of Jude Law’s more underrated performances. If Side Effects was really Soderbergh’s last feature, it would’ve been a fine note on which to exit. Instead, last summer, the auteur returned with the goofy and charming Logan Lucky. His own luck has, temporarily, evaporated with Unsane, which is a highly idiotic inversion of Side Effects.

Steven Soderbergh iphones

Steven Soderbergh is a big fan of making dramatic statements on the state of cinema. “I just don’t think movies matter as much any more,” the Ocean’s Eleven director said in 2013 when he announced his retirement from feature filmmaking. After that, the director did retreat into television, creating prestigious acclaimed series like The Knick and The Girlfriend Experience.

But Soderbergh briefly put his retirement on hold to direct the invigorating, severely underrated “hillbilly heist” film Logan Lucky, distributed independently through his own company last summer. And now, he inches his way further back into the feature film world with his newest experiment: Unsane, a thriller shot entirely on an iPhone. Soderbergh is still renouncing traditional studio filmmaking, but he says smartphones will be the alternative that will soon sweep the movie industry.
