Movie Reviews: “Get Out”
Movie Review: THE AGE
This 1940 Disney adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s novel about a puppet yearning to be a real boy is one of the great animated films, combining comedy, pathos, and nightmare in a free, rapid, genuinely imaginative way.
This is also the film that furnished the studio with its perfect theme song When You Wish Upon A Star. Palace Balwyn and Palace Dendy Brighton, Sat Sep 22 and Sun Sep 23, 10.30am.Evil lurks at the heart of an ordinary American family in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1943 small-town thriller, with Joseph Cotten as a charming psychopath who becomes an object of fascination for his young niece (Teresa Wright).
This was a key milestone for Hitchcock as an artist, and a major influence on later filmmakers from Claude Chabrol to David Lynch. Screens as part of a Hitchcock retrospective. Digitally projected. Lido, Classic and Cameo, Sun Sep 23, 4 pm.
Movie Review: salon
Jordan Peele’s highly anticipated — and justifiably hyped — cinematic directorial debut “Get Out” would be terrific even if it didn’t happen to be so goddamn timely. But coming a mere month into a new administration that’s its own special nightmare, the film’s racial anxiety horror feels all the sharper and more eerily resonant.
Early on in “Get Out,” Chris, a talented young photographer (played by British actor Daniel Kaluuya) is getting ready to spend a weekend with the family of his beautiful girlfriend Rose (“Girls” co-star Allison Williams, doing a knowingly milk-drinking, “Dirty Dancing” soundtrack-listening white chick shtick).
Packing his “cozy clothes,” he asks, “Do they know I’m black?” — a question she finds laughably outdated. Her dad, after all, would have voted for Obama three times if he could have. But even before they arrive at the house, Chris begins to comprehend that Rose’s lily-white suburb holds terrible secrets.
Movie Review: STANDARD
Let’s talk about sex (and racism). Samuel L Jackson feels Jordan Peele’s horror movie — in which a white girl takes her black boyfriend home to meet the folks — might have been better if the male lead, Daniel Kaluuya, had been African-American.
Jackson said: “Daniel grew up in a country where they’ve been interracial dating for a hundred years.” As far as he is concerned, Kaluuya’s British identity makes him the equivalent of a weekend punk.
