Review: Jordan Peele’s Us Is Dazzling to Look At. But What Is It Trying to Say?

Writer-director Jordan Peele’s 2017 Get Out was a brash and intriguing debut, a picture that wrestled with the notion of whether or not America can ever be a post-racial society: Vital and spooky, it refused to hand over easy answers. With the ambitious home-invasion horror chiller Us, Peele goes even deeper into the conflicted territory of class and race and privilege; he also ponders the traits that make us most human. But this time, he’s got so many ideas he can barely corral them, let alone connect them. He overthinks himself into a corner, and we’re stuck there with him.

Lupita Nyong’o stars as Adelaide, who has overcome a traumatic childhood experience and now has a family of her own, including husband Gabe (Winston Duke) and two kids: graceful, well-adjusted Zora (Shahadi Wright Joseph) and the slightly more awkward Jason (Evan Alex), who wears a wolfman mask pushed up on his head as a kind of security blanket. We meet the comfortably middle-class Wilson family as they’re heading off on vacation to Santa Cruz, the site of Adelaide’s childhood ordeal. On their first night away, they look out and see a family of four, mute and stony echoes of themselves, standing in the driveway. From there, Peele unspools a story of “shadow” people, long forced to live underground but now streaming to the Earth’s surface to claim, violently, what they feel is rightfully theirs.

The effectiveness of Us may depend on how little you know about it going in, so the spoiler-averse may wish to stop reading here. But it’s impossible to address any of the movie’s larger ideas without giving away key plot points: Before long, that shadow family has infiltrated the house, and now that we can get a good look, we see that each of them is a not-quite-right replica of a Wilson, dressed in a red jumpsuit and wielding a pair of menacing-looking shears. At one point a terrified Adelaide asks the other mother, a twin of herself but with vacant, crazy eyes and a demented smile, “What are you people?” “We are Americans,” the lookalike responds, in a whispery growl.

That’s a bright, neon-lit Author’s Message if ever there was one, though the idea of using a group of sunlight-deprived semi-zombies as a metaphorical element in a parable about class complacency isn’t necessarily a bad one. Are you and your family doing great? Do you live in a nice place, drive an expensive car, and have plenty of food for everyone to eat? Be grateful for it. But be aware that there are others who, through no fault of their own, don’t live at the same comfort level—or are, in fact, barely surviving. (The Wilsons also have close friends, Josh and Kitty, played by Tim Heidecker and Elisabeth Moss, who have more money and nicer stuff than they do, a source of irritation for Gabe in particular, and another of the movie’s threads about class consciousness in America.) But Peele doesn’t always lay out his ideas clearly. Us isn’t always fun to watch; there are stretches where it’s plodding and dour. He’s overly fond of heavy-duty references, including Biblical ones: A creepy dude holds a sign that reads Jeremiah 11:11. (If you don’t know it outright, it’s the one that goes, “Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.”) The mood of Us is sometimes chilling, but even then, you’re not always sure what, exactly, is chilling you. Maybe it’s just the feeling of being trapped in an over-air-conditioned lecture hall, because there’s a strain of preachiness running through the whole thing.

One thing that’s unquestionable: Peele is a dazzling visual stylist. (Peele’s cinematographer is Mike Gioulakis, who also shot David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows, as well as M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Glass.) The movie’s opening, which details young Adelaide’s nightmare—it takes place in a ghoulish hall of mirrors on the Santa Cruz boardwalk—is a mini-horror masterpiece by itself, an evocation of the outright weirdness of childhood rather than its wonder: As the girl wanders away from her parents, in an almost trancelike state, she clutches a candied apple so shiny it’s like blood-red crystal ball—and puts us in a trance, too.

Yet the rest of Us is laden with metaphors, and they pile up so quickly that not even Peele can keep up with them. The movie repeatedly references Hands Across America, a 1986 benefit event in which some 6.5 million people joined hands along a route mapped out across the contiguous United States. (Many participants had donated $ 10 to reserve a space in the chain; the money was donated to local charities dedicated to fighting hunger and ending poverty.) In Us, the shadow people form a similar chain. But it’s hard to know what Peele is trying to say with that image. Are the semi-zombies of Us just less fortunate versions of us? Are they actually us and we don’t know it? Is their clumsy anger somehow superior to thought and reason? After all, it has unified them, while we aboveground humans are more divided than ever.

How, in the end, are we supposed to feel about these shadow people, for so long deprived of basic human rights—including daylight—that they have become murderous clones? Sometimes great movies are ambiguous, but ambiguity resulting from unclear thinking makes nothing great. It’s one thing for a movie to humble you by leaving you unsure about yourself and your place in the world; it’s another for it to leave you wondering what, exactly, a filmmaker is trying to use his formidable verbal and visual vocabulary to say.

Black Excellence! Georgia Student Jordan Nixon Accepted Into 39 Colleges and Awarded $1.6 Million in Scholarships

Jordan Nixon, a 17-year-old high school senior at Douglas County High, has been accepted into 39 colleges and awarded $ 1.6 million in scholarships.

That’s impressive!

via People:

“The crazy thing is, I’m still waiting on decision letters, but I was not expecting that at all,” Nixon told the CBS 46.

Nixon’s acceptances are the highest number any student at Douglas County High has ever received, the outlet reported.

“We’re so happy for her because she does put in a lot of due diligence into applying for these schools,” Nixon’s parents Angelia and Arthur Nixon told CBS 46.

Her parents also described her as independent, well-rounded and an active participant in a plethora of extracurricular activities, CBS 46 reported.

“I am one of the captains of the varsity cheer team at Douglass County, I’m in Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, and I also participate in DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America),” the soon-to-be college student said.

Nixon explained she applied to about 50 schools, but is still surprised every time she reads a congratulations letter.

“It’s shocking, each and every time, you’re taken aback every time you open one,” Nixon told CBS 46.

As for how Nixon was able to rack up that many acceptances, she says “I don’t study all the time, but I definitely do study, I think my secret is to just give it my all.”

Nixon also spoke to Fox 5 Atlantathis link opens in a new tab, explaining that she hopes her story inspires others.

“I wanted to challenge myself,” Nixon told the outlet. “That was the most important thing for me, just to show others anything is possible and that anyone can accomplish it too.”

Nixon has yet to decide on a college, but has until May 1 to do so.

Congrats, Jordan!

James Jordan reveals extent of injuries

OHMYGOSSIP — James Jordan has revealed the extent of his injuries.
The 40-year-old dancer was forced to take some time out after suffering a hernia and he’s also revealed that his shoulder injury and arthritis in his hips and knees have been causing him a lot of pain.
James had been worried he’d have to pull out of the skating show before the semi-finals this weekend, but a spokesperson for the programme confirmed last week that he was back on the ice with professional partner Alexandra Schauman.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper Bizarre TV column, he said: “I’ve got a torn rotator cuff (a shoulder injury), tennis elbow, arthritis in both my hips, my knees have gone, I’ve got lower back pain and my hernia.”
The former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ star has also revealed that he was binging on pizzas to keep the weight on after he shed 15 kilos from the intense training, and admitted it’s difficult not to lose weight skating all the time.
He said: “I lost 15 kilos, but that was from when the moment I knew I was going to do the show.
“Every night at the hotel I was having pepperoni and jalapeno pizzas and I’ve just kept burning it off. It’s hard to keep the weight on.”
Despite having to take some time off the ice, the programme’s Associate Creative Director, Dan Whiston, believes the injury won’t have knocked James too far off track as he’s predicted either he or Wes Nelson – who is partnered with Vanessa Bauer – will earn a perfect score on Sunday (03.03.19).
He said recently: “Wes and James have come close to full 10s in previous weeks and I think it could be this week that one of those two can get a full set of 10s.
“I’d love to see the full 10s come out this weekend. I think if people skate clean, they’ll be well deserved, but the beauty about our show is that you never know what you’re going to get until the night.
“You never really know you can’t call it, anything can go wrong it’s slippy stuff out there. Is there any guarantees of 10s, no? Is it highly likely? Definitely.”
James – who underwent an operation on his hernia in 2017 – had previously admitted he had found it “hard” to train following his injury, with fellow skaters said to have been “terrified” when they saw him “double over in agony”.

Seth Meyers: Jim Jordan and Republicans ‘Embarrassed Themselves’ at Cohen Hearing

Nine hours of testimony from Michael Cohen meant an extra long “A Closer Look” from Seth Meyers Wednesday night. The Late Night host spent more than 15 minutes going deep on the hearing, beginning with GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz’s blatant threats against Cohen the night before.

“I didn’t think anyone could out-sleaze Donald Trump, but you did it, my friend,” Meyers told Gaetz. “You are trying to intimidate a witness on Twitter. What’s next, are you going to Instagram a picture of a brick with the caption, ‘About to throw this through your window?’”

Moving on to Cohen’s testimony itself, Meyers played a highlight reel from the former Trump fixer’s opening statement before noting, “Damn, he just listed off a bunch of alleged crimes committed by the president on national TV. You know it’s so ironic, Trump finally went to Vietnam and he’s getting killed back home.”

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ To Premiere As Opening Film At SXSW

NEW YORK (AP) — Jordan Peele’s “Us,” his anticipated follow-up to “Get Out,” will make its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

SXSW announced Tuesday that “Us” will open the 26th edition of the Austin, Texas, festival on March 8. Like Peele’s “Get Out,” ”Us” is a socially minded horror thriller.

The film stars Lupita Nyong’o as a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband and two children. On the vacation, an unresolved trauma from her past is unearthed leading to an eerie confrontation for the family with doppelgangers of themselves.

“Us” will be released March 22 by Universal Pictures. Peele also produces along with Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions. Co-stars include Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker.

SXSW runs March 8-17.

The Creepy Trailer for Jordan Peele’s New Film Us Is Here

The spooky trailer for Jordan Peele’s newest work, Us, is out, showing a family vacation that turns terrifying when a group of shadowy figures goes on the attack.

The trailer shows the Wilson family heading to a beach vacation in Northern California. While things are peaceful at first, they go awry after the Wilsons come under attack from the suspicious figures. Known as The Tethered, the scary figures end up being doppelgängers of the whole family — leading to some chill-inducing confusion.

The film, which stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, is the second horror installment from Peele, who took home an Academy Award last year for directing Get Out.

The Us trailer, which features the Wilsons coming face to face with the terrifying figures who eerily look like them, prompted funny online reactions as people joked through their fear about facing a doppelgänger.

“I think the main idea that went into writing this film is that we’re our own worst enemy, and that idea created this monster, The Tethered,” Peele told Entertainment Weekly about the film.

Naomi Osaka won the U.S. Open against Serena Williams recently and appeared on several talk shows after to discuss the big win. When she went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Osaka was asked about her celebrity crush. She admitted that she liked Michael B Jordan and right there Ellen texted him to possibly hook them up.

 

Osaka sat there blushing and couldn’t believe what was happening. The Jasmine Brand reports that Ellen decided to take things to another level when she wished Osaka a happy birthday this week. Attached to the birthday tweet was a photo of Jordan without his shirt on. Osaka tweeted back that she wanted Ellen to block her, but then Jordan tweeted something very special to Osaka.

 

He sent a newer photo with no shirt on and said, “This one is better and more recent. LOL Happy Belated Bday Naomi. But seriously I want to invite you to the Creed 2 premiere as a bday present.” We haven’t heard if Osaka is going or not, but if she doesn’t want to accept the invitation we know plenty of people that will take her place.
