Jordan Peele lovers who go to his most recent film “Us” hoping to come across another “Get Out” could be let down: Where Peele’s directorial debut lent itself to simple political allegory, the comply with-up feels murkier and stranger.
“Us” is a nightmarish journey into a globe invaded by sinister doppelgangers. The film does, ultimately, give a rationale for what is happening, but the surreal imagery (and the unsettling perform by the cast, led by Lupita Nyong’o) will adhere with you in a way that the explanations do not.
On this week’s episode of the Authentic Information podcast, we’re joined by Megan Rose Dickey to critique the movie. Now that it’s been a number of months considering the fact that “Us” hit theaters, it feels like the appropriate time to argue about what truly happened, dig into the film’s symbolism and see which supporter theories resonate.
We also chat about our expectations immediately after watching the initial trailer for the next Star Wars movie, “The Increase of Skywalker,” which is meant to wrap up the entire 9-episode tale.
