Review: Us

Jordan Peele does so much right in his latest film, Us. From a filmmaking standpoint, he creates incredible visual messages, there is an amazing score to heighten the tense, creepy, and uncomfortable feeling, and the acting is top notch. From a storytelling standpoint, he creates an interesting plot with likeable characters, a science fiction aspect, and intense twists and turns that keep you interested the entire way through. From a thematic standpoint, he creates a largely metaphorical film that covers politics, social issues, religion, and personal issues. And he does all of it so well.
