Get Out

A rather intreging thriller/horror/black comedy, which really is best not to read too much about beforehand. Its a bit of a social commentary about modern day USA, but in a Black Mirror sort of style.

Its a little heavy handed in approach at times, a few things are predictable but then laboured on in case you missed the clear signposting, and ultimately not as clever as it would like to be.

Decent but not particularly groundbreaking.

The fetishisation of the black male was interesting I thought. Everyone wants a piece of their sexual prowess, athleticism etc. But as far as their social role and how they dress and act they still want to be white.

I don't think it was really trying to be a film of twists and turns really until they explained the reason 'why' stuff was happening, but the reasons why weren't that important to the film anyway.

It's a lot better than any Black Mirror episode I've watched which is a series I've felt to be far too blunt with its criticisms even if it can be interesting sometimes.
