A good movie

Since I always had a weak spot for Steven Soderbergh's work and since this movie was dealing with an interesting subject, I was quite eager to check it out. Unfortunately, even though I did like this movie, as usual with Soderbergh's recent movies, it was still rather half-baked, I'm afraid. I would blame this on Soderbergh's usual rushed production process as this movie was released less than a year after 'Logan Lucky', his previous directing effort. Basically, this time, he tried to mix a really interesting insurance scam with a rather boring stalking thriller. Seriously, everything involving this stalker was just rather tedious but, also, it didn't make much sense. Indeed, if I understood it correctly, the guy killed and took over the identity of another man called Georges Shaw but who was Shaw? He couldn't have been someone already working at this mental hospital because his co-workers would have noticed that someone else completely different was showing up for work but why then bother killing him and taking his identity? In this case, how did he manage to get a job there just when the main character would haven been interned? In my opinion, they should have removed this part of the plot and focus more on the unstable state of mind of the main character. It would have worked so much better in combination with this frighteningly realistic insurance scam which displayed how completely rotten the health system has become in the US. Furthermore, I have to praise Claire Foy who delivered such a strong performance. Indeed, she was quite fascinating to be behold and she displayed something so completely different than what she delivered in 'The Crown' and I will definitely check her future work. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of it flaws, it was still a decent watch and I think it is worth a look even if, as usual with Soderbergh, it could have been so much better.
