Saw US yesterday. I’m probably going to be in the minority here, but I liked it better than Get Out.
Get Out was much tighter in terms of theme, but I think it kind of lost itself in its own message in places. US had its theme take a backseat to the cinematic experience, and for me, that works. That decision by Peele not to continually remind the audience what the movie is trying to say leaves a little more room for ambiguity and interpretation. If Get Out was Peele on race, US is Peele on class warfare.
It had its issues. There were some plot holes, but they weren’t distracting. The attention to detail is pretty impressive. There aren’t many lines from the first half that don’t pay off in the second somehow.
Still digesting this. Great movie.
