Nope ★★★★

Thinking that metatexually this might be about Peele trying to tame the beast of balancing his creative vision with the demands of studio filmmaking. Trying his hardest not to be swallowed up by the very thing he wishes to show off to his audience. Us had him stretching himself thin as the movie walked a tightrope of explaining too much and explaining too little. Nope is the far better film but you can still feel him struggling to unify plot and theme as this film reaches its final act. Sad that the bone chilling set piece of the second act was never topped.
