Watching Get Out for the second time made me pick up on a lot more especially since I was watching the movie this time to analyze it. The first takeaway I had was just the mask of white tolerance, with all its microagressions and gaslighting, but when you dig deeper Peele portrays white society as a conscious facilitator of racism and the dehumanization of black people. Chris had to stay alert to this racism in order to survive, which I believe was the real horror of this movie (aside from the experiments and mind control); black americans surviving in the face of whiteness. I think this is what made this movie distinguish itself from other films that tackle racism in america in the sense that Peele doesn’t focus on a certain event, policy, or era to portray how racism effects black americans, but instead Peele recreates our current racialized society in which black people must navigate on the daily. Additionally, I noticed how the inclusion of medical experiments was not a mistake or a random choice; it speaks to the eugenics movement in america. There was a lot more to unpack in this movie such as the construction of violence and the dangers of white feminism but these are just some of the takeaways I got from this insanely thought-provoking movie.
