Nope ★★★★★

Not to say that either of his first two films were slouches, but Jordan Peele has made his genuine classic. Nope is exhilarating, ambitious entertainment in the vein of Spielberg's signature blockbusters. Peele is now a full-on master of pacing and foreshadowing. Nothing happens in this film without a purpose, not even the pop culture references. The chapter structure works insanely well. Keke Palmer finally receives a role worthy of her talent. The much-mocked Twitter stan who declared Peele the greatest horror director of all time might be overzealous, particularly since Nope isn't quite horror (it's more sci-fi / weird western), but no one can legitimately deny his place among today's significant Hollywood auteurs.
