Movie review: ‘Searching’ takes a few too many turns

Perhaps "Searching" would feel more revolutionary had "Unfriended: Dark Web" not been so recently released. The two films take for their conceit and style the reality that these days, we live our lives online, and therefore, the entirety of the cinematic experience never leaves the computer screen. While the "Unfriended" series applies the technique to B-movie horror frights, "Searching," directed by Aneesh Chaganty and written by Chaganty and Sev Ohanian, attempts to elevate it to something more sophisticated: a dramatic thriller, the story of a man looking for his missing daughter.
