Us ★★

pacey and clever until it decides to jump with both feet into a bizarrely overwritten high-concept scenario. same nervous jokey energy as get out but here lupita dominates everything (the kids are great too). even the big exposition scene, the split-diopter shot, at the end becomes more about her delivery than her lines. a perfunctory, deeply expected twist sends us packing with unproductive fridge logic quibbles.

white people DO listen to black flag tho

not generally a fan of circle-shaped narratives that end up filling in all their blank spots 😓
