NOPE (2022)

Another banger from Jordan Peele! If Get Out was his Sixth Sense, then this is his Signs.

The trailers are somewhat deceptive as to what kind of movie this actually is, and the film itself is quite cryptic about it for the first half, before properly settling and letting you know for real what you’re watching.

It’s very well written, shot with creativity and style, and brings enough unique character, humour and strange flavour to the table to make it really stand out. Minimal locations, clever and striking low-key production design.

Less horror film, more creature-feature. It’s really fun, definitely worth a watch.

Highly recommended.

  1. I just got back from seeing Nope and it’s just about everything that I chiefly like in sci-fi: a mix of the old and the new, the freedom for interesting discussions, and the most unique signature of a director like Jordan Peele to make it feel particularly exciting. Thanks for recommending it because so do I.

      1. Finally realizing that Nope is intended as an acronym for “Not Of Planet Earth” was the biggest surprise for me.
