oluc’s review published on Letterboxd:
1. No deeper metaphor here; it’s just the primal fear of the irrational. People poking at the plot holes and inconsistencies here are completely missing the point of Peele’s random nightmare logic. Eschewing a real sense of continuity is the point. Not to say there aren’t great themes and subtext here; there are if you look for them.
2. This movie would be at home in 2007 with There Will Be Blood and the Assassination of Jesse James for its sheer sense of scale. Movies don’t feel BIG like this anymore.
3. Peele is the most shamelessly cinephilic director since Quentin Tarantino. There are references to John Ford, Clint Eastwood, Michael Haneke, John Carpenter, David Lynch, M. Night Shyamalan, Paul Thomas Anderson, and the list goes on.
4. This is Jordan Peele’s best movie.
