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.
March 27, 2017
Mostly [Peele] creates a lovely, off-kilter mood, riffing with tremendous visual poise on all sorts of classics, including Seconds, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and The Stepford Wives.
August 12, 2019
Peele has a solid script and a knack for storytelling in an appealing way which makes Get Out is more enjoyable than many of the other suspense/thriller/horror movies being made today.

It perfectly homages classic horror movies while feeling contemporary in its themes. However, it's also one of the most entertaining movie experiences I've ever had.
July 16, 2019
With great buzz and nearly universal acclaim, critics may worry about overselling Get Out. But the film truly is one of the funniest comedies, scariest horror films, and most assured cinematic debuts in recent memory.

The satirical thesis of writer/director Jordan Peele's Get Out is so deliciously literal, Jonathan Swift modestly proposes that his recipe has been bitten.
June 4, 2019
One of the most complex and ferocious explorations of race in America to have ever been released by a major studio.
May 16, 2019
Jordan Peele succeeds in giving us a smart, well-written thriller/horror filled with a great balance of tongue-in-cheek humour and a viscerally intense uneasiness.
May 6, 2019
Peele's examination of the subtle racism amongst liberal white people is unforgettable, evoking classic horror while carving out a new territory wholly his own.
April 23, 2019
[Jordan Peele] is starting off in a great place as far as building a filmography.
March 10, 2019
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.
March 6, 2019
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.
February 28, 2019
Suffice it to say Get Out does a good job weaving together traditional horror tropes with pointed satire about racism.
February 12, 2019
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.
February 11, 2019
You have a good time, and you gain a little perspective...it makes nuance a priority.
February 1, 2019
Peele's directorial debut is a promise of good things to come.
