This week’s movie review comes to us from KWIT’s new program We are not a Monolith, a show about African American issues in Siouxland. Seems odd that they’d feature a movie review, but that’s just what they did, reviewing Jordan Peele’s “Get Out,” which is getting some pretty incredible reviews.
The film follows an African American man home with his white girlfriend to (presumably) upstate New York. Peele, a comedian, is known for his cutting humor, but is garnering just as much attention with his writing and directing debut in a race-conscious horror flick.
TheWe are not a Monolith show is hosted by locals Shelby Pierce and Ike Rayford. Without spoilers, they discuss how Peele uses the genre to raise issues of race that elude films like Hidden Figures.
