Spooky Sundays 👹- Get Out (2017)
THIS WEEK’S FEATURE PRESENTATION:
Get Out (2017)
Here at Grand Gentlemen, nothing is more important to us than “family time”. Which is why at least once, every week, we loosen our ties and unwind for a wild voyage into the great world of cinema.
This week, my friends... we watch the definition of an entire generation.
For this week’s Feature Presentation, we watched a stroke of genius from 2017’s champion “Get Out”, written and directed by a humble hero you may know as Jordan Peele.
In this beautifully written, generation-defining story, Chris (played by Daniel Kaluuya) is convinced into spending the weekend with his girlfriend Rose (played by Allison Williams) and her family out in the middle of nowhere, confirming a line that Black women have been whispering into the ears of little black boys since the very dawn of time itself...
“Don’t you be out there trustin’ these white women...”
Granted, it takes Chris a little over an hour before he is reminded of this horrifying revelation. And even then... by the time he finally does, the entire story will have already shaken you down to your very core.
Now, I don’t want to say much, because I personally feel that this is a story that should definitely be watched and not read... but what Jordan Peele and the amazing cast and crew of “Get Out” did is nothing short of “movie magic”, and I hope it lives on to be picked apart and studied for years to come.
“Get Out” is a true definition of inspiration and with an opening scene that’ll send chills down anyone’s spine, I'm very anxious to see how it’ll stand again the tests of time.
Bravo, Jordan. Your genius certainly did not go unnoticed. - Gents
