    ★★½

    Pure silliness masquerading as high concept cinema, but the setpieces are masterfully executed—visually atleast. I could probably look past the immense plot convolutions if the characters would just shut up, but Nolan is as Nolan does.

    Get Out is an easy-to-predict horror comedy that doubles as an overt social satire about current race relations in the US. Though pretty heavy handedly, the film definitely says what it intends to say.  It sorta (but not completely) fails as a horror film, as it takes way too long to get where it's going and almost every little aspect is seen coming from a mile away. Don't get me wrong, there are some genuinely creepy and uncomfortable scenes here, but those…
