Jordan Peele’s launch from a solid comedy base with Key & Peele to the unexpected Get Out was so impressive that he’s generated a huge amount of good will that allows him to play the full-on auteur with huge budgets. Did that pay off with his third film, the monster movie Nope?
Mark is joined by Lawrence Ware (philosophy prof. and entertainment writer), Sarahlyn Bruck (novelist and writing prof.), and Nicole Pometti (media artist and podcaster).
One can’t really talk about this film without immediately spoiling it, so be warned!
