This brilliantly provocative first feature from comic turned writer-director Jordan Peele proves that the best way to get satire to a mass audience is to call it horror.
Kudos to Peele for tackling a painful subject in such a massively entertaining and thoroughly memorable fashion. [Full review in Japanese]
It's a game-changer.
It's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner made over in the spirit of Rosemary's Baby, with accessories inspired by Meet the Fockers.
By focusing the storyline on a particular form of racism -- the kind that's often disguised as peculiar envy -- Get Out reveals something more insidious.
Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa.
The film has clever ideas about literalizing black fear of the pathology of whiteness, but it doesn't go far enough in its indictment of white supremacy.
The tightly wound plot unspools with expert control. Some elements are guessable, but there are also fantastically judged reveals which balance the audience on a knife edge of possibility, creating visceral tension and even panic.
Suffice it to say Get Out does a good job weaving together traditional horror tropes with pointed satire about racism.
Intelligent and intense, Get Out lingers long after the credits roll. It is one of those rare films that has "instant classic" written all over it.
You have a good time, and you gain a little perspective...it makes nuance a priority.
Peele's directorial debut is a promise of good things to come.
Very clever, brilliantly written and wonderfully uncomfortable neo horror movie, challenging racial stereotypes and viewer' expectations with almost every scene. The acting is as outstanding as the premise and the realization. A pretty wild and fun ride, not without humor but also a pretty gory final act. One of the freshest horror thrillers of recent years and deserving of all the praise it is getting.
Intense, thrilling, and very funny. One of the best "horror" movies I can remember.
A weekend getaway to meet the new girlfriend's parents is a horrific consideration for most guys no matter what the situation but Jordan Peele's debut squeezes this chestnut as if it were a bad comedy. This is a decent thrill ride with male paranoia as the fuel for the engine.
