Get Out

Get Out ★★★★

A film that has only gotten better and better the more I’ve watched it. I’ve liked it since the first time I saw but with each viewing, there are more layers to unravel, more neat tricks from Peele’s direction, and I marvel more and more at Peele’s tight, control and smart writing and screenplay. The commentary of race in a white liberal context is so sharp, so smartly layered, and working in harmony with plot, character, and action while never struggling to make the metaphors feel cohesive or contradictory with the horror (something that is easy to do and even the most recent Candyman falls into). I still like Us a bit more but both remain some of the best recent studio horror films to be released. And even if I haven’t been completely thrilled with some of Peele’s produced films I can’t wait to see him back in the director's chair.
