Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend.

The stark black and white cinematic poster showing a cropped close-up of the protagonist's eyes is an inverted reference to the poster of La Haine (1995). Both films offer contemporary examinations of cultural appropriation, marginalization, and racism. See more »

Ok here goes. Having read the reviews and seeing how polarized they were,, I had to check the movie out myself.
To all who regard the movie as racist - I don't think so. Any modern day theme be it racism, sexism, disability issues anything can be used in this movie to highhight the issues being faced by individuals. It is for most part a unique genre in its own right.
Take dusk till dawn mix it with some eugenics and a pinch of humour and bingo .
Yes it does make you feel uncomfortable but not in a serious way. It's funny in places and very clever in bits. Some beautiful shots and filming and menacing score keep it simmering brilliantly. Watch it make your own mind up. Personally one of the most enjoyable movies from last year. Bravo.
