Us ★★★★

US is an audacious & clever trip through the looking glass that asks how Americans are going to live with ourselves after being reminded of who we really are. a lot funnier than it is frightening — a horror movie for a world in which real life is scary enough on its own. Lupitas! that score!

definitely some bumps in the road, but i was sold on its big ideas. anything more will have to wait.

EDIT: bumping this up to ****. the more i read about it / sit with it, the more i like it. seems to be a pattern with Peele's movies.
