I saw it without knowing what happens in the second half and enjoyed it completely.

Congrats to Jordan Peele for such a fine job on his first film.

From the first, the dialog led you to the next logical step of what was going to happen. Chapelle would title it: The Stepford Negroes. I found it interesting but was not impressed in the least especially with its 100% Tomater rating. Can't help but think that was politics. I was impressed with the brief on-screen time of Betty Gabriel who played Georgina, the
maid of the house who projected both serenity and a woman trying to get out of her skin at the same instant.

If you are into recycled plots and some "kill whitey" action this is for you.

5.5/10

 

the ending was easy to guess but that did not spoil it for me, I agree about Betty Gabriel, she is terrific, posted on February 26, 2017 at 20:12:48

I liked the hypnotism sequences as well

Chapelle nailed it (hypothetically)

interesting how we disagree so often

I do respect your opinion but we often wind up with different opinions

and of course your far superior writing skills

or maybe my juvenile skills

until next time...
