    Wow, what a wall of text.

    Anyway, preferred this to both Get Out and The Shape of Water, if that is where the conversation is right now. Riley’s vision is more interesting to me, and the absurdism used in this film worked better than Peele’s derivative horror-satire or Del Toro’s bland mishmash of “genre.”

    better than Peele’s derivative horror-satire

    Curious, why do you think Get Out was derivative? I found it rather profound and original. Can’t think of that mixture of horror/race/social implications with any other horror film I’ve seen in the past. The horror, too, was very subtle. A different kind of horror…Also…there’s no satire in it. I’m a little disturbed you walked away seeing satire in a brutal movie like that.

    …if you’re white and like the people in the movie tho, then I’m definitely *not* surprised.

    I love this movie. Its messiness is part of its rabid, radical charm.
