Get Out: Retrospective Review

Recently re-released on Presidents Day 2018 to highlight the current racial conversation, Get Out very efficiently manages to be a pretty perfect little horror film, as well as conversation starter. That’s without even knowing the director, Jordan Peele, has a comedy sketch background, and so because of the sheer balance that requires, he was more than prepared for this.
Definitely, where the story give us an African-American, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), meeting the white girlfriend’s Rose (Allison Williams) parents, things, through unexpected twists, turn all too prejudicial soon enough.
Don’t expect me to say much more than what I already have, because I strongly believe you’ll get the best impact from this Out if you go in cold enough. Instead, i’ll try highlighting some of the other actors: Bradley Whitford and Catherine Kenner are both scarily relatable as the white girlfriend’s parents, Missy and Dean, Lil Rel Howley always keeps our attention when he’s on-screen as Chris’s best friend, Rod, and so forth.
So please give this a go if you haven’t. At the time writing it’s already up for Best Picture and Director Oscars, impressive for a horror film, which tells you enough!
