    When spoiler, Jordan Peele managed to weave social commentary directly into the climax of the film. That is amazing. 2 years 3 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!

    Jordan Peele's Get Out is a well-constructed horror-thriller (and pun not intended, black comedy) with fine attention to detail, exampled of which I can't mention because they would spoil the "solution". One you know that solution, rewatching the film will make you questions the motive behind every innocuous moment and line. Definitely some rewatch value there. What has entranced critics, I think, is that the film is about the black experience, and specifically about the anxiety a black person might feel around white liberals who don't consider themselves racist, but nevertheless act differently and overcompensate around black people. Add to that a concern with being "black enough"present in the work of Key & Peele and you might start to discern Get Out's complexity. Not one of those horror flicks who should shut your brain down for. Worth every penny. 2 years 4 months ago
