Searching is a movie which unfolds almost entirely through computer screens. Like producer Timur Bekmambetov’s movie ‘Unfriended’, it works well enough if you don’t care about actual movies.
It’s about a single father, who loses his daughter and desperately looks for her in the movie presented in the video screen the whole time. The acting was very intense and surprising from the start to the very end.
Previous movies have tried to blend in the internet and social media into the storytelling, but usually it seems unnatural. In Searching, the internet is very crucial as online stalking is common.
The story is simple but your curiosity will keep going up as time goes on.
Even though it seems like a low budget movie, it is well cast. It’s ever increasing suspense will definitely bamboozle anyone. John Cho ‘s character, David Kim, desperately searches for his daughter once his teenage daughter Margot (Michelle La) goes missing. Detective Vick (Debra Messing) is assigned to the case, and David’s brother Peter (Joseph Lee) helps him.
Sorry, did I say assigned?
Find it out yourself. You won’t regret it giving it a watch.
