What Is Reality? Two Playlists Inspired by 'Unsane'
Steven Soderbergh's new psychological thriller comes out on March 23
Published Mar 19, 2018
What is reality? That's the question at the heart of Steven Soderbergh's new psychological thriller Unsane, which tells of a woman (played by Claire Foy) who is committed to a psychiatric hospital without being given a proper reason. Is she a victim of the system? Or is her perception of reality skewed?
This is a conundrum that has plagued storytellers for centuries, from Shakespeare's plays to Ken Kesey's classic 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Questions about reality and bureaucracy are a subject of endless fascination, and Unsane offers a particularly chilling and paranoid look at these timeless themes.
In the spirit of Unsane, Exclaim! has created two unique playlists: one is about about the paranoia of questioning your own perception of reality, and the other is about rebelling against a corrupt system. Who's your real enemy: is it the system or yourself?
Check out the playlists below. At the bottom of the page, see a trailer for Unsane. Catch the film when it arrives in theatres on March 23.
Playlist 1: Altered Reality
Playlist 2: Smash the System
