#37 GET OUT 



Get Out needs to be seen with an audience to enjoy it at full effect!. This is the blackest (no pun intended) comedy of the year, mixing in elements of The Stepford Wives, Rosemary's Baby and the Key & Peele show (Jordan Peele wrote and directed this). Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), who is black, accompanies his white girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, who plays this role perfectly) to her isolated childhood home to meet her parents, Dean (Bradley Whitford) and Missy (Catherine Keener) as well as a bunch of their rich friends. Dean overreaches tremendously, telling Chris he would have voted for Obama for a third term and other such things. It's all weird and the upper class partygoers seems to be strangely fascinated by Chris. Meanwhile, the black maid & groundskeeper dress and talk like Ozzie and Harriett (Google them). Missy is a therapist who knows hypnosis and seems to hypnotize Chris in order to get him to stop smoking. But what else was affected? There is a TON of good stuff in Get Out, too numerous to list here, but there's all kinds of shots taken at white liberals and 2017 race relations, just to name a couple. Peele nails the difficult balancing act between comedy and horror, no easy feat. Oh and watch out for that Bingo game! Clever, funny, memorable, creepy, one of a kind - all that describes Get Out! 


 Go see.
