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.
