What to think of us ?
We saw the movie Uslike many people who have seen get-out, by the same director. In this film, different themes are treated together, and we find the extreme symbolism of Jordan Peele, which makes his mark in his various productions. In this respect, since we are talking about doppelgängers, we necessarily also speak of doubles, of twinningand Jordan Peele uses this common thread to offer an interesting axial construction, as well as many callbacks (including a good number of mirrors, binoculars, etc.). There is also a form of highlighting of violence, with an accumulation of weapons (scissors, embers, clubs, etc.).
Finally, the message carried by the film refers to sociological themes, and to the differences that separate social classes. With quality photography that magnifies Jordan Peele’s postthis film can be enjoyed, but we are still unsatisfied with the final revelation, and above all, with the fact that many elements are not explained. Some will speak of “artistic touch” when others will see a weakness in the writing. On our side, we appreciated the show, even if it is not the GREAT horror movie that we always hope to discover by launching the “Play” button.
