Therefore thus saith the Lord: "Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them."

jeremiah 11:11

jordan peele is a genius. this is just as good as get out, but it's slightly better in terms of horror, story, punchlines (some funny moments in here and they don't kill the mood at all), the score and the soundtrack (AWESOME song choices and the original score is a killer, specially when things get real) and performances. i mean lupita nyong'o is giving her all and deserves all the praise (specially when she's interacting with her other self... good shit) but i got most impressed with how good shahadi wright joseph was. definitely keeping my eye on her from now on.

i also love the fact that the story is not straightforward like get out, you have to dig deeper to find out what's all about, giving room for a lot of interpretations within what peele is trying to say with all the social commentary. there is also the ending that people may have a problem with but i found it deliciously wicked and surprisingly effective. i can't wait to see what peele will bring us next. by the way i would definitely recommend paying attention to every little detail because it's worth it!
