Episode 18: Get Out, Part 1

18 Get Out

Our first movie review episode of the month. This month’s theme is Actors Turned Directors so we will be watching movies that are directed by people that started out as actors (or still continue to be). And we are starting with a interesting one, Jordan Peele’s Get Out. 

This one’s a two parter! We had so much to say this episode that we couldn’t shut up so we split this in to two parts for you guys! The second part will be out sometime later this week. We had some really great discussion about the themes of this film and their relevance in American culture. So come back for Part 2 to be a part of that! We would LOVE to hear your thoughts on what we talked about, so please comment below or email us to let us know what you guys thought of this movie and our discussion.

“A young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s parents for the weekend, where his simmering uneasiness about their reception of him eventually reaches a boiling point.” Written and directed by Jordan Peele, this movie is his break out from the comedy stuff we were all used to seeing from him. Whether or not you like this film, I think you gotta recognize it as a really strong directorial debut!
