What Is The Shape Of Your Monster? – Get Out and Thought-out Horror
No, I’m dead serious. If you haven’t already seen Jordan
Peele’s Get Out yet, I need you to do
me a massive favor. I need you to bookmark this page, close this page, and
absolutely do not read this page— or any other essay or article on Get Out—
until you’ve finished watching it.
I’m not just saying this because this essay will contain
major spoilers for a movie that is best enjoyed going in knowing as little as
possible— I mean, yes, it will— but most of all I just want as many people to
see this movie as possible. It is by far the most socially relevant American
movie to come out this year, at time of writing, if not one of the most
socially relevant pieces of American art of the past decade.
