So where do you go when you have conquered the world, and the world has started your style? In the US and on the internet, we like to build artists only to tear them down once their novelty wears off (most recent example: Taika Waititi). It’s a very successful issue, pigeon artists have resisted since the beginning. Dylan goes by electric. Performed by Paul Thomas Anderson There will be bloodshed. Kanye threw the play in Hawaii. Peele’s best comparison, in terms of career trajectory, is Kendrick Lamar, who opened with the perfect debut, followed by a brilliant, thousand-layered treatise that novelized the rap album. , then respond to accusations. that he’s a sophisticated, intellectual headphone rapper by slapping his butt in tracksuits and clamshell-toned albums. No by Jordan Peele DAMNED. It’s a movie where you can end up for the first time wondering, “What did I miss?” And the answer is nothing or everything, because the point is to enjoy the visceral pleasures of the seasonal blockbuster.
“I don’t know why people can’t just let me do one movie,” Peele told GQ this week. “We had to make that big original blockbuster, and that was part of the movie in itself.” Those are the words of an artist who opposes how he is culturally labeled and defined, an escapist artist, ready for change and growth. No represent that natural evolution.
This is not to say that it is a film without ideas, one that is sure to be the subject of theory in film students’ semester papers for years to come. The film is about apex predators and the primacy of nature, man’s struggle against the elements, confronting force majeure, ownership of artwork, and a Sisyphusian follower Chase the perfect photo. But its messages were vague and obscured in a way that Peele’s first two attempts, and working as a producer, failed to achieve. Ideas are more abstract and ephemeral, less essential to its enjoyment.
It was a spectacle of spectacles. There are traces of the classics Jaw, Alienand Carnivores, a summer population it may have just joined. The horse ranch in a trench is played by siblings (played by Daniel Kaluyaa and Keke Palmer), which are competing with an alien invasion, as the ocean liner, the spaceship, the forest. dense, suffocating stage on which humans must take down an impossible enemy. Like the shark, and HR Geiger’s spoilers, and the giant predator, Peele concealed his threat for as long as possible, turning the empty space of the sky peaceful, endless, full of clouds pose a threat. His camera placement, the longevity of the camera, the almost unbearable noise of film in IMAX, re-establish his position as a master of tonal setting and sensory experience. sense, and set No like an elemental suspense machine.
It’s a movie you feel, one that will live in your gut longer than your head—in the best possible way.
