Verdict – 3/5

Pros –
1) Stalker-psychological-thriller with elements of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
2) Nate being a journalist plot-twist
3) The horrific side of the insurance scam

 

Cons –
1) Shot on iPhone 7 Plus in 4K. Why? It’s not adding anything to the film. Soderbergh being an established A-Lister don’t need this gimmick.
