The new elements of the exchange gain power from the context of a familiar set up. Just as the immortal line late in the movie, “You know I can’t give you the keys, right babe?” has an inevitability that makes it all the more terrifying. The audaciously frank ideas delivered in classical packaging make “Get Out” the most ingenious construction of all the nominees.

I’d say that no screenwriter in 2017 did more while working from scratch than Peele did. . . . Get Out’s script privileges character and situation over allusion; its greatest moments of recognition are rooted in lived, rather than viewed, experience.

For me, there are only three kinds of films — good, bad and occasionally great. “Get Out” is made with the finely honed precision of a master. It transcends genre, as do “Psycho,” “Alien” and “Rosemary’s Baby.” Most of us go to a movie to laugh, to be moved or to be scared. We want an emotional response and some kind of satisfying closure. “Get Out” delivers on all cylinders. There’s not a wasted frame or moment.
