Movie Monday: Searching – unique and intense #MovieMonday #Searching #MovieTwit #MovieReview

Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week I want to talk about the movie I watched a while ago that has left a huge impact on me.

Searching

A while back I watched one of my favorite youtubers, Nikki Blackketer, mentioned in her vlog a movie called Searching. She went to the screening of it and ended up really enjoying it.
Once I heard her opinions about it, I knew I had to watch it myself.

Since it was never in theaters or any kind of screening here in Croatia, I had to wait until it was available to stream, and guess what? The waiting was worth it!

Searching is crime drama with unique way of story telling. I have never watched anything similar before, and I was positively surprised.
You see, the whole movie is filmed as screenshots (and screens in general) of computer, mobile phones, television inserts, with interesting and gripping plot.

The story follows David Kim who’s daughter went missing after she was studying with a group of friends.
One of the things she left behind was her laptop. Now, with an aim to find her, her father breaks into her computer and searches for any kind of clues.
While finding signs and hints, he comes to conclusion he didn’t know his daughter as good as he thought.

This movie was so good, I would highly recommend it to everyone who likes mysteries. It took a while for me to get used to the way it was filmed, but once I got into the story, I was really invested.
In a matter of fact, I was so thrilled I didn’t want to be bothered by anyone! I just wanted to have my own piece while watching, so I wouldn’t miss anything.

I really appreciate the way Searching was filmed, I’ve never seen a movie delivered in such an original way, but I hope there won’t be dozens of movies now imitating this piece.

Overall, if you have an opportunity, I highly recommend you to watch Searching. I hope you will like it as much as I did.

  1. I always appreciate when movies take a risk, even if it ends up not being my cup of tea, it’s always very interesting to see what new choices they make and how a story can be told in a different way. Like when they’re told in real time, or they use really long takes, etc. For example, Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina was a very striking movie, very original.

    That is all to say thanks for bringing this one to my attention, I’ll definitely be watching it asap.
