Movie Diary 2/21/2017

A United Kingdom (Amma Asante, 2016). The mode is fairly dull BBC gloss, which is why we should give this film credit for sneakily using its interracial-romance premise as a way of easing us into the outrages of African colonial politics. (full review 2/24)

Get Out (Jordan Peele, 2017). Ingenious, scary, funny, and an inside-out observation on race. I’ll take it. (full review 2/24)
