In 2014, Jordan Peele in an interview answered loudly: “I spent the first half of my career focusing on comedy, but my goal, to be honest, is to write and direct horror movies. . ” The listener scratches his head, they don’t know Peele’s seriousness – a professional comedian half-jokingly – with this statement. At that time, people only knew this colored guy through the ridiculous jokes in Mad TV or Key & Peele.
Five years later, with two Oscar nominations and a series of prestigious film awards, Jordan Peele officially became a scatterer on the screen with horror, cultural and political works.
From “watery” meme owners
As the familiar face of the Mad TV and Key & Peele comedy series, Jordan Peele is no stranger to difficult expressions. One of the moments in history is the scene of a guy being cornered by the question of dislike hobbies while watching “pig movie”. Sweat is like a bath, Peele’s funny face makes netizens make porridge constantly and become “meme to life” on social networks.
Key & Peele’s short episodes on Comedy Central put a name on the popular public actors Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, on the other hand a way to mock social habits and discrimination. There is a lot of divided America. Key & Peele closed in 2015 with 5 seasons, a Peabody Award and two Primetime Emmy awards. Jordan Peele learned that it was time for him to step back behind the lens to fulfill his dream, to have a look of a filmmaker. That was when the dream named Get Out became a reality.
Until the nightmare “Get Out”
With Peele, Get Out is a longtime dream come true when he is given the right to write and direct. For the audience, this is a 2-hour nightmare on the screen, tearing up the fake coverings of a fair society that flattens straight into American racism. It is the story of a visit to the home of a white girlfriend’s parents ‘parents’ home, from which the cruel history of black people was once again named in the click of a silver spoon on a cup of tea.
Us and Twilight Zone
After making the famous BlacKkKlansman production at the Oscar this year, Jordan Peele did not let public opinion stop talking about him when the upcoming movie horror Us (We) will be released. The director once said, “I look to cinema as a way out of reality. I think one of the things we try to do is create an outlet for the audience – but not allowed to let them indifferent” with what’s happening around “.
Loyal to this principle, Peele continues to exploit the horror of a black family that goes deeper into the fear that the American society is still afraid to mention. It was a terrible confrontation with the Wilson skin color family with four identical clones. To escape the pursuit of four ghostly entities, Wilson’s house had no choice but to stand up and kill themselves.
