Get Out

Get Out ★★★★½

One of the few films of the 21st century that can claim to be truly iconic. Smarter, fresher, and bolder than virtually anything that came before, and leagues ahead of the countless imitators it spawned. On rewatch, some of Peele’s social commentary feels like it goes without saying, but that’s exactly the point – Get Out didn’t so much shift the conversation as redefine it completely, holding up a mirror to middle America and forcing viewers to confront the boogeyman of liberal racism. It’s impossible to imagine today’s horror landscape without it.
