Thoughts on Get Out
This is the directorial debut of Jordan Peele who is a comedian that has been on Mad TV and Key & Peele. It’s about a interracial relationship about Chris played by Daniel Kaluuya (who was great, he’s british and really nailed the american accent) meeting his girlfriend’s parent played by Allison Williams. When he’s over there are some stange things he’s witnessing.
This is one of the best horror films I’ve seen and it might be my favourite horror film. I love the racial social commentary it has since Jordan Peele wrote the script from some of his experience since he feels akward being the only black person in a room. the villains in the film are not rednecks or neo naziz, they’re are white liberals. The dad even says that he would vote for Obama a third time if he could. I’ve seen some interviews from Jordan Peele where he talks about how people don’t wanna talk about racism anymore and thinks that it doesn’t exist because Obama has been president. I love what it has to say that we judge people by their race, stereotype and not by their personality.
The direction is great and I can’t wait for what Jordan Peele does next. The acting is great especially Daniel Kaluuya and Lil Rel Howery who addes some good humour to this film and I hope everyone from the cast get more roles. The score is also really good and I hope Redbone becomes a hit because it’s one of the best songs released in recent years.
I know it was released february in U.S, but I hope it gets some Oscar nominations specificaly for the script, directing and picture. I don’t really have any problems with film and I’m glad that it got 100 % for a long time in Rotten Tomatoes until someone gave it a rotten score so now it has 99 %. I don’t know if there’ll be any films I’ll like more than Get Out, but this is a film you should definately watch.
