At a Vanity Fair screening of the film, Jordan Peele explained that he wrote the screenplay during the first term of former President Barack Obama, when racism was believed to be a thing of the past. He thought there would not be much interest for his movie in such an optimistic climate, so he wrote it mainly for himself. With the increasing discussion regarding violence against African-Americans, and the coming of the Black Lives Matter movement in later years, he knew the time was right to make the movie. See more »
When Chris sends Rod a photo on his phone, he begins typing Rod's name into the recipient tab. However, even after several letters, his phone screen shows "no name found" in the tab. A suggested contact should have popped up right away. See more »
Fantastic! I would not call it "horror" but certainly "thriller" with some comedy thrown into it. This Jordan Peele fellow has managed to bring something new to this genre and I certainly hope he'll do more thrillers.
The cast is great and I especially enjoyed Betty Gabriels performance. Lots of faces I have never seen before and they all did a stellar job. And those faces I have seen before did a stellar job, too. =)
I do not know if the overall idea is new but the way it was presented and the way it was done feels very fresh.
