Culture Maven review: "Nope"
Film Review & Podcast by c d kaplan
It's taken me several days since viewing Jordan Peele’s latest movie “Nope,” to understand how all its moving parts work together, and aren’t just the writer/ director flying off in many directions.
It is at its base level about flying saucers circling a canyon ranch outside LA, wrecking havoc.
But, with its various and sundry cultural and social references, much more.
Like, among a lot of other things, the origin of moving pictures, 50s and 60s sitcoms, roadside attractions and an endearing brother/ sister relationship.
Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun star.
“Nope” is a spectacle, a beautiful filmed epic movie that is mysterious, funny, intelligent and significantly entertaining.
