The Invisible Man (2020)
Updated: Sep 5
Fortunately, Leigh Whanell is a better director than actor, much better. This is a fresh, modern take on the classic invisible man. It has a few nods to the keep an eye for. I also want to mention I thought the opening credits were a fun and unique. It is the story of a woman who escapes an abusive relationship. Shortly after she leaves her ex unexpectedly dies. Though she is convinced he is not dead and is stalking her. The trailer for this movie covers most of the first act of the film but stops short of giving away to much. This film makes the viewer feel under stress, tension, paranoid, for good reason. It shows you what it can be like to leave an abusive relationship in painful detail, sometime lingering in shots to accentuate the emotion of the moment. It spends a lot of time focusing on the main character Cecilia, played by Elisabeth Moss, she carries the film on her back with this performance. There is a little action, a little violence, but seems to try to avoid any blood or gore. There is alot going on for a pretty basic storyline. It looks and sounds very good. I gave it a 9 out of 10 easily.
