‘Get Out’ Is Even Better Than Woke White Critics Have Told You

Review: ‘Get Out’ Is Even Better Than Woke White Critics Have Told You

“It’s Peele’s mastery of tone that makes the biggest impression. He ratchets up the creepiness and lingers on the levity just long enough to deliver a thrum of anticipation each time he switches gears. Get Out mostly takes place in broad daylight, in the huge, high-ceilinged rooms and outdoor entertaining spaces of the rich and famous, but still manages to convey a relentless claustrophobia. Chris reaches out to the few people of colour in the overwhelmingly white world he’s visiting, only to find they’re off, somehow. He’s trapped and alone. Segregated, you might say.

The creepiness is so constant, so pervasive, that the third-act revelations — and you better believe there are revelations, as satisfying as they are gruesome — act as a kind of catharsis.”
