Day 17: The Best Movie You Saw During the Last Year

Time to stretch the prompt, aka cheat a little. If you combine suspense and crime and add dark humor and race consciousness, you get my favorite movie of the year:

GET OUT (2017)


How fortuitous to find this black and white image to reinforce my stretch. Akin in style and tone to The Stepford Wives and The Twilight Zone, the closest  Jordan Peele’s Get Out comes to noir is via Hitchcock suspense. I’ll take that and run with it, right out of liberal white town and into the heart of #BlackLivesMatter.
