“Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a twentysomething photographer in an unnamed city, is heading to the suburbs with his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), to meet her parents—and she hasn’t told them that Chris is black. From this premise, the writer and director Jordan Peele (of Key and Peele) develops a brilliantly satirical horror comedy that pierces the sensitive points of American race relations with surgical precision and destroys comforting illusions with radical ferocity. A pre-credit scene sets up the looming violence, though nothing seems further from the warm embrace with which Rose’s parents, Dean (Bradley Whitford), a neurosurgeon, and Missy (Catherine Keener), a psychiatrist, welcome Chris. Still, he is puzzled by the remote and ironic behavior of the family’s help, Georgina (Betty Gabriel) and Walter (Marcus Henderson), who are black. A teeming party scene reveals prosperous white folks’ genteel prejudices as well as hints that something deeper is amiss in their paradise—something like involuntary servitude—and Chris’s best friend, Rod (Lil Rel Howery), suspects trouble, even as ingenious dream sequences conjure Chris’s own forebodings. Peele’s perfectly tuned cast and deft camera work unleash his uproarious humor along with his political fury; with his first film, he’s already an American Buñuel.— Richard Brody, The New Yorker”
Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He’s made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you’re laughing even as you’re thinking, and vice-versa.—Stephanie Zacharek, Time
Get Out starts with a great title and a promising idea — a black man’s fear as he walks at night down a street in an affluent white suburb. Then it delivers on that promise with explosive brilliance. Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
It’s a little of everything: unnerving, funny in just the right way and at the right times, serious about its observations and perspectives on racial animus, straight-up populist when it comes to an increasingly (but not sadistically) violent climax. That’s entertainment!—Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
Like so much of Key & Peele’s comedy, Get Out is refreshing in its naked, frank aggression about confronting racial issues, with comedy, drama, and sharp, unsparing insight.—Tasha Robinson, The Verge

A profile of an ancient city and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat.
“KEDI, a documentary about cats in Istanbul, is expectedly adorable and unexpectedly wise”—Vox. “Quietly magical”—Variety.
Hundreds of thousands of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. They wander in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame—and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. Critics and internet cats agree—this cat movie will charm its way into your heart as you fall in love with the cats of Istanbul. If you’re a cat lover, you’ll be in heaven. If you’re a dog lover, KEDI might make you convert!
I am a cat owner, I admit, but even I was surprised at the power of Kedi. Where did all that emotion come from? It’s because what Torun really captures in her unexpectedly powerful film is kindness in its purest form.—Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com
The Istanbul interviewees believe it is their responsibility to look after the cats but not confine them as indoor pets. This responsibility is a matter of almost spiritual deference. —Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
[A] splendidly graceful and quietly magical documentary.—Joe Leydon, Variety
There’s a fascinating therapeutic undercurrent to the interviews with human beings.—Mike D’Angelo, The A.V. Club
