EFC 3.02: Get Out

Feat. The Music of Run The Jewels

“…You’ll be able to see and hear what your body is doing, but your existence will be as a passenger – An audience. You’ll live in The Sunken Place.”

Hypnosis works, boys and girls. Writer/Director, Jordan Peele, proves it with Get Out (2017), the horrifying dark comedy that is, for me, the film experience of 2017.

Synopsis (imdb): A young African-American visits his white girlfriend’s parents for the weekend, where his simmering uneasiness about their reception of him eventually reaches a boiling point…

… At which, my jaw fell straight to the cold marble floor of the movie theater. I didn’t retrieve it until the end credits rolled. Spat out saccharine cellophane, black licorice and salt.

Get Out isn’t just a great horror movie, it’s an emotionally charged powerhouse that generates, quite possibly the most empathy I’ve ever felt for a movie character. For a gender. For a race. And for a generation who’s minds are being f***ed with by people who should know better.

“We do use focal points sometimes to guide someone into a heightened state of suggestibility.”

      1. I liked seeing Frances up there of course, and Guillermo. Sean and I saw both of those movies at the Venice Film Festival and have been following them every since so it was nice to see the payoff. Love Helen Mirren on a jetski. I loved the song from The Greatest Showman. Thought Kumail’s quote in the diversity montage was pretty epic.
        What did you think?

      2. Frances was awesome. Yeah, the “This is me” performance was Greatest Showman gave me the feels. When Coco won best original song instead I was like HA, whatever. The Lopez’ are great. Let it Go is one of the best songs ever written. But I didn’t think this one from Coco was as good. But I haven’t seen Coco or Greatest Showman Yet.

        The Montages throughout were my favorite parts. I must find out who did those. They knocked my socks off.

        So cool that you got to see those films at the Venice Film festival. That’s legit!
