I suppose much gets lost in cross-cultural understanding. The protagonist's motivation is not always clear to a non-African mindset, although eventually, you'll catch on. The acting appears wooden, deliberate and uninspired. At times the film moves excruciatingly slow. Opportunities to liven-up the storyline are missed. But, as I insinuated, this critique comes from somebody with a different cultural background. Half a star more for yours truly possibly missing some of the finer points.
I do not understand what the hype about this movie is. Combining horror and humor is difficult enough-and it fails-and, the notion of addressing America's race problem with this flick is utterly laughable (maybe that was the humor?!). Comparing "Get Out" to "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Stepford Wives" is an insult to the latter two. Symptomatic of the American audience's moral depravity. One star for a few cute ideas. Bottom line: Two thumbs down.
I'm definitely not in the camp of those who thought this flick wonnnnnderful. It borrows, steals, copies from musical films of yore without offering anything new. The singing (??) is labored, the dancing pedestrian, the choreography unspectacular, and the story, well, is nothing to write home about. If this is what millennials see as entertaining, then I'm glad I'm out of touch with them. Bottom line: La La La Di Da.
Bad. Bad. Bad. Everything. Bad. You have to wonder about a society that produces such a film and thinks it entertainment. Pedestrian acting, unbearably clichéd and slower than a dead snail-words fail me. Bottom line: Made for Trump U freshmen.
Sensitive treatment of an unfortunately all too American problem. In his directorial debut, William H. Macy manages to keep the plot from slipping into the sensational or melodramatic. A talented cast supports the effort of trying to bring some sense into a tragedy that cannot be explained. Crudup is brilliant. Haunting music. Bottom line: Unapologetic
