    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I needed the context of Nope to see it this way, but the whole "I need your eyes" aspect- I think has got to be Peele already nodding towards the exploitative nature of the film industry, a theme he's exploring much more directly in Nope.

  • Don't Worry Darling

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★½

    Visually interesting. Had about 3 too few ideas and 30 minutes too much running time. It’s like a good film that played to all its weaknesses.
