    While not the slam dunk that "Get Out" is, "Nope" still contains fantastic visuals, sound work, as well as some truly startling sequences. The ideas contained within take a little more uncovering, but the more I think about "Nope", the more I find myself liking this movie. 4 months 1 week ago

    One the surface, Nope is a cool horror twist on the ol' alien abduction story, visually interesting, funny when it wants to be, tense when it needs to be, and extremely well-constructed, its Chekhov's guns organic rather than forced. But the choices Jordan Peele makes force you to scratch beyond that surface at what meaning might be hidden underneath. I came out of this thinking it was Peele's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with much of the humor coming from the vacuity of the projects various characters take pride in. A story about exploitation (of animals, child actors, tragedy, even self-exploitation), doing everything for "the money shot" including putting people in danger or burning them out (art as commodity is definitely a theme, note the extended Monopoly riff), and a sense that if you don't exploit yourself, someone else will. And in the context of Peele's oeuvre (seeing as the first piece of film shows an unknown black man on a horse, equating the two), that exploitation and thoughtless abuse is of African-Americans. Here, I thought of Childish Gambino's This Is America - African-Americans in the entertainment industry becoming acceptable "as spectacle" to white audiences, but at what personal or cultural cost? Look at me! Make me famous! That's the only way to be safe and thrive! Say the characters, says the monster. 4 months 1 week ago

    Daniel Kaluuya looked bored or severely ill through the whole film and I simply could not get over it. Thank god for Keke Palmer bringing the comedic relief and acting for both of them. 3 months 1 week ago
