They pretend to be the help when people, especially ones they want to put in the sunken place, come over. Otherwise, it'll be pretty hard to explain why a couple of 30-something african americans live out in the country with a white family.


Friends of the family staying for an extended visit? Have them show up with the rest of the party guests? For such a big piece of the plot I couldn't buy the reasoning or how they behaved.
They didn't try much to explain the jazz musician being the boyfriend of the old white lady. He was just there.


They were the help already, werent they?


No. They were both lured by Allison Williams's character. We see that when Chris (the protagonist) looks behind the door she left open in her room, and he sees pictures of all her previous, err, "subjects". Then he sees a photograph of her with "grandpa" and one of her with "grandma", but it's obvious from the context of those photos that she's dating them and that they're not her grandparents.

It's not such a big stretch for older parents to live with their kids. Happens all the time.

That family wasn't normal, you know? Wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have friends who stayed over for extended periods, and I also won't be surprised if their friends were in on this.

It was obvious that he was snatched by their son, they transplanted the old lady's brain in his head. He was there to show people how well the operation worked. I think that after he freaked out because of the flash and the mom put him back in the sunken place, she came out and said something along the lines of "it won't happen again", to ensure them that this isn't something that would happen to them, were they to go through with a similar operation.

It's funny when people get peeved when things aren't realistic in horror movies. Moreover, I don't think this is a movie that should be taken at face value. Its deeper value is the commentary on how black bodies are viewed by white people in America, and in general about how black people are treated by whites, etc.

I don't think that is proven. That she was "dating" them. It is possible that they did work at the house and she took photos with them before the experiment was done. Not sure if the age/timelines would match up for anything other than companionship.

This stupid fucking thread has me wondering about age discrepancies in dating of fictional characters. You people are no fun.

Let's watch that part again:

phpBB [media]


Yeah, you're right. Who doesn't take bathroom mirror selfies with their parents' maid??

This is obviously a pile of photos of her with people she dated, all of whom are black. That scene was a key moment in the movie because that's when he realizes he needs to get out.

Ahh, I now recognize the main issue I had here when watching this scene is that I don't see color. I feel sorry for you, eliya.

A jazz brother dating an old white lady, yeah jeez that needs a lot of explanation... :roll:

Saw this last night and thought it was great. Peele perfectly achieved that creepiness that comes from creating an environment that's almost normal--normal, just a bit off. It's also the case that "normal" means, in this context, white people boasting to black people about how much they admire Tiger Woods and Barack Obama.

Spoilers:

Also, I thought this was obvious, but . . . the jazz musician wasn't a sex slave or even a boyfriend. He's the woman's husband, or rather, he's the woman's husband's brain implanted in the body of a younger black man. All of the bizarre behavior at the garden party isn't just white people making condescending, self-aggrandizing comments to the black person. It's the white people trying the black body on for size. In one instance, a white wife checks Chris's arm strength while her husband, who sits in a wheel chair and breathes through a tube, watches on. Stephen Root wants his eyes.

I also think that Catherine Keener hypnotizes the grandparents, which is why they perform the function of "the help" so effectively. She stoops to using it on her own family. Recall that the housekeeper appears with tea right after Keener taps her teacup with the spoon.

It's obvious. It's the entire point of the scenes.

the best part was when the white braud was eating cereal dry while drinking milk separately through a straw.

the movie was pretty ok over all, i guess.

stoner idea with a huge budget.

tiny budget though, like less than $5 million. They crossed 250 million in receipts though.

And so much more than a "stoner idea." If you take away the hypnosis/ brain stuff, it's a realistic depiction of what every black person who interacts with entitled white society experiences. I suggest re-watching it with a black friend. Observe their responses. You might be missing something.

What Boombats said is right on. This is far from a stoner idea.

Kinda can't think of another film that leveled me in quite the same way. I watched it alone, and it ruined any chance of sleep.

Glad I watched it. Sorry it took me so long. A failure in marketing, as it was clearly shows to be a horror film when it came out (yes, I understand how it is a horror film--i mean a slasher shitty horror film).

Superb film.

Because it is thought provoking, or because it was scary?

I really need to rewatch this with a different context. I didn't think it was funny enough to be comedy, nor scary/unsettling enough to be horror. I think I just need to come at it as satirical drama with some light elements of comedy and horror. Definitely want to watch it with the not happy ending as well.

I see no need to shoe-horn it into a pigeon-hole or any other mixed metaphor. Plenty of horror films have bits that make you laugh, and plenty of films that made me laugh (Happiness, The Comedy) don't have any "jokes" and have truly horrific moments.

If I had to call Get Out any one thing, well I'd either go with what Jordan Peele called it (a documentary) out of deference to its creator, or I'd simply say it's a thriller.

Sorry for jumping to conclusions/ making stereotypical assumptions, but I'm gonna assume you are not an ethnic minority. If you were, you might find it plenty scary.

The scary part was when Daniel Kaluuya is freaking out and his eyes are bloody red with tears pouring out... Just watching that gave me a headache.

it’s bland unalive white folks making talented black folks their bey. soul stealing to wear like fashion. it’s what i’d play for miley cyrus at a sleepover party to be like “see! stop it”.

the industry is like, beyonce gets famous and doesn’t get it. wake up church singer, they want black britney spears you’re filling a role for these folks to hold like a barbie they’re playing with. privledges society folks who grow up with rules and see aliveness and want to wear it without like, without any aknowledgement of struggle or an entire culture. black lives matter. make up your own street dances how about?

but i think you gotta treat those kinda white folks like babies, they honestly just act hungry and don’t know better. you can get mad and show black power or get intelligent and keep trying to instruct like spike lee or be ignorant af like kanye and bask in it and marry a porn star and let little girls grow up thinking she’s marilyn monroe or like, anything at all. or you can do like martin luther king jr and keep helping every new generation get less clueless and closer to world peace.

of course the white skinned version of this kinda reaping is being a fan of eminem and not getting him, he’s not some white dude giving white guys permission to rap but millennials fuckin monkey see, monkey ran with it

all the lame rap these days, guys rhyming and wearing clothes at me like eff you, my people put the gangster in gangsta rap and you’re from fake hollywood rich families, buncha tori spellings

it’s a trend for all colors of guys to go for the whitest version of black they can find, it’s pretty gross and it’s why i don’t date black dudes who say “white girls only” or “im done with black chicks”. you have no idea how often this gets declared, when really they’re saying they want easy and they’re done with the struggle, they’re settling into societal life and that’s like, fine go be bored with some tammy who’s never had to do a thing in life and is why they act so innocent or carefree but don’t look at me and think I’m it, stupid ass hoes. my cheerfulness is despite idiots like you trying to take it away from the kinda “for colored girls” that suffer life event after life fuckin event of tradgedy in this pigeon hole world

pink is also in this boat but hollywood white washed her and she can’t figure it out, she’s kept her integrity but she’s an rnb rap star that gave up on girls like me to be edgier britney spears and folks eat that gimmick so easily.

as for me ive never sold out. everybody just thinks im the coolest white girl around but they can’t tell I’m white chocolate. i look and speak the way i do for a reason and i guess you gotta let folks not get it until the folks that do speak loudly enough.

everybody buys the package they’re sold. nobody asks why. people just get iphones cause everyone else did. computers are for nerds you dumb idiots, entire generation of hoes on instagram. dark devil eyebrow trends like it’s socially acceptable to just ... stupidity has spread like wildfire. where does beauty and integrity hide? cause it’s not vanity wanting followers or likes and comments and validation that yes you’re all hoes.
