Just because you're invited, doesn't mean you're welcome.
Racially charged horror from Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Ouija) starring Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario) in an Oscar-nominated performance. Along with a nomination for Best Picture and Director, Jordan Peele won an Academy Award for his original screenplay.... More
Now that Chris (Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). 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 could have never imagined.Hide

It’s hard to remember the last time we had a horror film that burns with such lacerating topicality as Jordan Peele’s Get Out. Employing genre conventions in service of skewering and exposing the insidious nature of racism, it suggests the iconic, politically charged, zeitgeist-defining wallop of your Romeros and Carpenters of yesteryear....

It’s ostensibly The Wicker Man remodeled for the #BlackLivesMatter era — smart, accessible, pin-sharp, and also a more authentic, disturbing genre-tweaking pic about slavery and the antebellum South than Django Unchained. This rings resoundingly true in the sense that Peele’s shrewd, mordantly funny — and often discomforting — portrait of preening white privilege and entitlement reveals how Tarantino’s well-meaning, fist-bumping solidarity with black culture is not dissimilar to the wealthy elites here who fawn profusely over all aspects of otherwise-everyman protagonist Daniel Kaluuya’s blackness.
The set-up — a black boyfriend meeting his white girlfriend’s parents for the first time — is as switched-on as any of Peele’s sharpest sketch work with former comic collaborator Keegan-Michael Key. It’s perfectly oiled for optimal button-pushing squirm, which in this case, manifests itself in an outlandish plot involving kidnapping, hypnosis and pod-people creepiness.
Peele is a skillful puppet-master, with an efficiently honed grasp of timing, but he’s an even better, more astute chronicler of race relations, unearthing true terror in the toxicity of seemingly benign social pleasantries and the enveloping aloneness of the minority experience. Get Out is fundamentally the potent cinematic answer to “I can’t be racist because I have a [ethnic minority] friend”. It’s essential.Hide

Loved this film it's simply shot, acting is just divine, beautifully plotted it just sucks you into the story from the first scene you are hooked, you'll laugh, a gasp but mostly you'll laugh because it's a crazy insane ride you will not forget in a hurry, a must see.

Like a crazy mix of ‘Wickerman’ ‘The Stepford Wives’ ‘Saw’ ‘Selfless’ ’Skeleton Key’ and ‘Wrong Turn’. It really had me guess a few times and frustrated on the edge of my seat that the main guy wasn’t doing anything. Aargh.. Really great film and well played out. Good timing and crazy beautiful ending.
Genre : Drama, horror, thriller, sci-fi
4/5 : it didn’t need much more to tip it over the edge, but most people (I think) will feel betrayed by the length and... More ending of this picture.Hide
