Get Out

Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

    Painful, Gripping, Scary & Fun
    Get Out is the best film that's ever used the subject of racial divide - and to great extent. As you watch, you become immersed in the main characters plight to weave through offensive slurs and prevail from awkward situations, but if it's not the gruelling nature of his journey that grips you, it's the moment the film flips on its head and the end becomes the begining. Too often movies have a predictable nature about them, but Get Out gets you in the present moment as each second ticks by. So ingeniously implemented are each of the directors turns that you, the viewer, feel like both the first and last to experience each moment. I don't know if this film was produced for 3D, but never before have I watched a two-dimensional showing on a 50 inch screen, and felt so nervous as I anticipated each passing moment right there inside each gritty scene.

    "Black is in fashion!"
    A rather curious movie hybrid with the ideas, themes, allusions, and references to films such as Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Meet the Parents, The Stepford Wives and Being John Malkovich. It is billed as a horror film, but it can be described as a very dark comedy with elements of fantasy, horror, and satire which focuses on racial relations in the modern United States.

    I was impressed with the directorial debut by Jordan Peele. He skillfully created a restless, even creepy atmosphere during the scenes where nothing terrible happens. On the contrary, everyone is nice and smiling at the main character Chris, a handsome black guy, surrounding him with attention and seemingly taking him in as a potential member of the wealthy and liberal upper-middle class white family. They live in a beautifully manicured country estate and warmly welcome a New Yorker boyfriend of their daughter who brought him over for a weekend to meet her parents and brother. Everything seems fine, but there is clearly a strange tension, discomfort, awkwardness, possibly related to the gazes of the couple of black servants, the gardener and the cook. They obviously can't take their eyes off Chris and behave with either charmingly old-fashioned, or, perhaps, a little frightening politeness.
