After 2017’s “Get Out,” Jordan Peele came out with another twisted, bizarre splash of comedy and thriller in his latest movie “Us.”
There are several ways to interpret this movie due to all the clues you may see.
The movie starts off pretty interesting with a young girl finding her doppelganger in the woods.
Only to find out that young girl was the main character battling against her doppelganger at an older age throughout the film.
You may recognize the actors of Adelaide and Gabe Wilson as they were also actors in the Marvel Studios film “Black Panther.”
It was very interesting to see how they went from acting in an action-packed movie like “Black Panther” then coming back acting in a thriller movie.
One thing was for sure, they really surprised me in how diverse their acting skills are.
Throughout the film, the Bible verse Jeremiah 11:11 is seen.
The verse says “Therefore this what the Lord says: I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.”
With that being said, that verse should help give clues on certain things you may see within the movie.
Jordan Peele did a great job in selecting the cast he chooses because they had to take on two roles within the movie and did a great job.
The regular family is what looked to be a middle-class African American family with college-educated parents.
So you can see them speak as they are a well-educated family. Then having to play a role as a doppelganger who is completely opposite.
The ability to display both normalities in the Wilsons and pure evil in the doppelgangers was astonishing.
However, the person who deserves much recognition and an award for their acting is none other than Lupita Nyong’O herself. You’ll see why once you watch the movie.
Jordan Peele’s uprise as a director and writer is beginning to blossom.
I’m sure you all have seen his comedy skits in the Key and Peele series.
With how the skits are made, you can see very brilliant stories, but never would I have thought that it could transition into great movies as well.
Peele incorporates horror, comedy and special twists in his movies.
He gives the audiences a chance to look back and think about the movie.
To think of things that do pertain to the real world. Not many directors do that with theirs.
“Us” is definitely a movie that needs to be watched more than once to get a full understanding of the film.
