"The actual differences between white and black Americans aren’t, of course, biological or qualitative but political, psychological, experiential. The reality of the black experience, in GO, is revealed to be historical consciousness." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker. 3.5 stars
"Ieri notte sono stato ipnotizzato." "Negro, va via da quel cazzo di posto!" ...mai consiglio è stato più azzeccato. Colonna sonora potente, sceneggiatura interessante, fatta eccezione per il finale che non mantiene il livello, con un uscita alla Rambo che sfiora il ridicolo. Bravi gli interpreti, specialmente con una serie dialoghi bizzarri che aumentano la sensazione di disagio. Chris con Georgina da pelle d'oca.
Holy shit. That was overly creepy and traumatic. I loved how much of a HIGHLY FUNCTIONAL VICTIM he was. We need more smart people like him in thrillers please. I’ve never felt so confident of someone getting out of their problems than with him. The relief feeling I was left with at the end was so satisfying for this kind of movies. Actors played very well their weird roles.
Fine and well made film, the tone control between horror and comedy is good. The tense scenes were great and there were funny jokes too. But Get Out takes a black and white approach to it's main theme, i would have preferred a more dynamic and multifaceted approach. And lastly why are there jump scare noises in the film? your exploring racism, one of mankind's darkest qualities, yet jump scares are inserted here.
3.6 Not my genre but this worked great for a movie date with my friend who doesn't watch films in black and white, or with subtitles. I really have to search for a film to watch with this friend. We also saw Carrie, Good Time, American Honey, Tangerine... so along with those films, this is one that makes it though the filters of two very different filmgoers and succeeds very well.
