Well-paced, suspenseful horror with a touch of humor...
Jordan Peele's cinematic debut is an astounding accomplishment for a genre that is commonly maligned as formulaic and inaccessible to broader audiences. What may first smack as a homage to the blaxploitation horror tradition, "Get Out" proves to be much more than any cliche attempt to elicit fear and unease purely through racial tension, gore, or cheap jump scares. Through the eyes of Chris, played by Daniel Kaluuya, we get a small taste of what it feels like to be truly uncomfortable in one's own skin. The tension is authentic, building into peaks of anxiety broken by stabs of humor, and sometimes the absurd (as can be Mr. Peele's inclination). Twists, turns, and a rousing climax complete an experience that wills surely engage from the opening scene to credits.
I can only think of a handful of moments where I lost immersion due to clumsy dialogue or clunky cinematography. Overall this film is highly deserving of it's Oscar and I will enjoy watching it again in the future. Mr. Peele and the entire cast obviously have incredible talent and I look forward to seeing more of their work.
