Get United Out (This Week’s Movies)

Allison Williams, Daniel Kaluuya: Get Out

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

Get Out. “Peele must have studied the slow-burn horror film, and the way a director like Roman Polanski (or M. Night Shyamalan, for that matter) can unnerve you with the simplest little touches.”

A United Kingdom. “The interracial romance actually turns out to be a door into a more complex geopolitical chess match, in which the dying specter of colonialism makes its final grabs at maintaining dominance in Africa.”

Dark Night. “There’s something unpleasant — maybe more so than the filmmaker intended — about how we’re not sure which of the men might turn out to be the eventual mass murderer.”

And some Oscar predictions. Going on record here with an upset pick for Best Picture.

Speaking of the Oscars, the Framing Pictures talkers give their opinions about this year’s nominees. Check out the talk here at the Seattle Channel website.
