After attending the premiere screening of Jordan Peele's "Us", I can't help but feel conflicted. The first two acts are sensational, but third is confusing and left me bizarrely frustrated.
In this horror film, a family's vacation turns to chaos when a group of doppelgängers begin to terrorize them.
Cinematically, "Us" is ambitious, creative, darkly funny and even scary at times. Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years A Slave") throws it out of the park with this home run of a performance. She is beyond terrific. You can see what writer/director Jordan Peele ("Get Out") is trying to do here, and kind of mirror us a society with these doppelgängers, but what's the actual point of them? I left the movie theatre super psyched but as I kept thinking about the third act, I was left with unanswered questions and that frustrated me. There is no doubt that the film's Peele is creating are some of the most diverse, horrifying, hilarious and original films of our generation; he is a master. The more I think about "Us", the more I want answers. Maybe that's what Peele wants; for us to start a conversation and answer these questions. Who knows. All I know is that if you appreciate a vision, it's most definitely worth a watch.
Go see it and let me know what you think.
