The top-grossing movie this weekend will be a satire of liberal racism: Get Out is a suspense-horror movie whose villains include a wealthy white man who boasts of his admiration for Barack Obama. It would be a mistake to label the movie conservative, but conservatives will smile at certain aspects of it. Here’s what writer/director/producer Jordan Peele said about his intentions, according to Deadline Hollywood:
“It was very important for me for this movie not to be about the Black guy going to the South and going to a red state where the presumption for a lot of people is that everyone is a racist there,” added Peele, “This was really meant to take a stab at the liberal elite that tends to believe that we’re above these things.”
Also, whatever audiences make of its politics, Get Out is a pretty good movie. If you enjoy the genre, you’ll enjoy this creative entry.
