One of the few movies I can recommend you see IN the theater. I didn’t hear a murmur. Not one popcorn chomp, not one whisper. We did, however, all scream at the right places.
A fun, terrifying roller coaster ride meant to be enjoyed communally, Jordan Peele’s second film ain’t deep, but it is accomplished, devastatingly funny and thoroughly engrossing.
I can’t speak much to the plot, as it would just give it away, so I’ll leave it at the following. The film is spine-tingling, brilliantly scored, and Peele never makes a wrong step. His ken for arresting and creepy imagery is stunning, the script is clever, and the twists are well-founded and earned.
Afterwards, you will find that it does not hold up to logical scrutiny yet that failure doesn’t make a damn bit of difference to your enjoyment of the picture.
