In this installment, I'll be dissecting Jordan Peele's latest cinematic endeavor, a horror film by the name of Us. Peele’s previous effort, the critically acclaimed and award winning Get Out, was a film I very much enjoyed. This one is a little more ambiguous with respect to its underlying themes. I didn't quite know how to feel about this film after first having seen it. In fact, I think it took me a couple of days to fully digest what I'd witnessed. This is an extremely weird movie. And it is one that I would highly recommend. Us practically begs the viewer to interpret the film in thematic terms. It asks you to look beneath the surface, and perhaps do some digging to uncover whatever unpleasant things might be hiding underground. So, naturally, I thought it would be worth taking a closer look at.
