Ep 179: “Get Out”

February 15, 2022

We sink into Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” and discuss:

  • Cinematography, camerawork and how it relates to the story, the sunken place, using long holds;
  • Story & writing, social horror, rewatchability, WTF moments;
  • Performance of Daniel Kaluuya;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. – HP Lovecraft
