Director Jordan Peele’s latest film pours rocket fuel on the ideas he first explored in his masterpiece Get Out. The magic tricks, themes and sheer spectacle in this genre-smashing sci-fi Western are both subtle and grand. It is also the first horror film to be shot in IMAX, as much about the craft of moviemaking as it is about scaring your pants off.
“Will it fulfill the expectations raised by Peele’s first two mind-bending, zeitgeist-surfing features, Get Out and Us, or confound them? I can now report that the answer is: Yup. There are …internal tensions, impeccably managed suspense, sharp jokes and a beguiling, unnerving atmosphere of all-around weirdness.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
“With Nope, Peele looks specifically to the history of the cinema and its intersection with the experience of Black Americans to create a backstory that virtually imbues every frame of the movie.” — Richard Brody, The New Yorker
