Dan and Garrett are joined by Philadelphia comedians Abeeku Cobbina and Setoiyo to chat about Jordan Peele's directorial debut, Get Out. With one of the tightest scripts in recent memory, Peele delivers a thrilling social satire about race and otherness in the supposedly "post-racial" America we tried to lay claim to during the Obama administration. As the gang attempts to unpack every bit of imagery and metaphor, they're continually lead into frank conversations about blackness in America, blackness in horror movies, and how Peele intertwines the two to create a narrative that is both enlightening and constructive, rather than instructive. If you've yet to see Get Out, this podcast is SPOILER heavy and we recommend seeing the film before listening. The film is currently playing in theaters, enjoying much deserved critical and financial success, and you should buy a ticket right now.
Follow us on twitter @ilike2movie and, in honor of Get Out, vote on which social satire we should review next: Dawn of the Dead (1978), Robocop (1987), or Nightcrawler (2014).
