Get Out

Get Out ticketstubThis is a tough movie to categorize. There's a little comedy, some graphic shooty stabby action, a little horror, but mostly it's social commentary. I don't think I'm smart enough or even aware enough to get all the nuance I feel is in here somewhere, so I won't make a fool of myself trying to guess, but even if you're not fully aware of the message, you can clearly see there is a message there, and it does make you think about race relations. This is absolutely an excellent movie. The acting is wonderful, the writing is excellent, the pacing is probably perfect, and the reveal is a lot of fun. So why not a perfect score? Plot holes. While I can potentially excuse these issues for the sake of just enjoying the film, I feel they still detract significantly from the meaning behind the reveal. So, good job, just not perfect.

4/5
