Us ★★★★½

This is an experience I won't forget: The entire audience I saw this with were predominantly white and was mainly teenagers. The entire runtime, not a single laugh was uttered when a joke landed (which confused me, since the majority of the humor was pretty good), not a single member gasped when a twist came up (there were a lot) and not a single person clapped at the end. If anything, everyone stormed out of there when the credits came up.

I won't forget this because I don't think any of them really quite understood what the movie was trying to say, metaphorically and politically. I guess they assumed they were getting what that Octavia Spencer flick "Ma" is gonna give them come May (which they reacted to as if THAT was frightening...come the fuck on)...
