Searching (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Searching is a damn clever film. Taking the format set out in Unfriended (everything being done in-screen) it delivers a missing child thriller which cleverly flips and turns along its  narrative.  Okay so to be honest I pretty much guessed the outcome from the moment certain characters appear but the format and use of media, computers and technology to tell its story make the film pretty captivating (dubbed Screenlife).  This evolution of the found footage movie feels right

Best Bit:  The Screenlife format works really well

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Unfriended, The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity
