Nope ★★★★½

Jordan Peele really made a sci-fi blockbuster mocking the industry, about how audiences (“The Viewers”) chew up artists and spit them out, commodify trauma, all the while advocating for the majesty of moviemaking magic and practical effects and analog tech while spiting digital and paying utmost respect to the below-the-line cast and crew. Child actors and minorities’ treatment in Hollywood compared to its treatment of animals. 

Honestly blown away right now. Brilliant! A spectacle that examines spectacle and all the awful shit we can’t help but crane our necks to stare at and try to capture on camera.
