    When spoiler, Jordan Peele managed to weave social commentary directly into the climax of the film. That is amazing. 7 years 2 months ago

    I don't know what the other commenters here are thinking. I found this movie to be EXCELLENT. It's not about some "new form [of] racism]" as one comment states. It's not about the anxiety a black person "might" feel around "white liberals" and I certainly don't think that there are many, if any, "innocuous moments" at all! This movie tackles RACISM, which is more than just plain-stated bigotry. This is about implicit bias. This movie tackles the subject matter of being a minority in a society that isn't made for you.

    This is an incredibly deliberate, intentional film by a talented director with strong command of the medium. From Frame 1 it sets up a tension that only builds, excepting a few comic relief moments (which actually work!), all the way to the climax.

    I absolutely feel this film is worthy of all the praise it's receiving, and I think this one is going to be studied for years to come, partly because of its excellent execution, but also partly because it's a movie about the black experience told from the perspective of a black person, by a black person. That should be a no-brainer but I can't think of another movie that does it, let alone like this.

    Oh, also: this is one hell of a directorial debut. The cinematography and sound design work, the acting is excellent, and it was scary as FUCK!

    Great old-school horror/suspense thriller. Not this crap they sell nowadays that's all jumpcuts for startles. 7 years 3 months ago
