    Amazing! An incredibly unique take on UFO stories. There are themes of the obsession with media and spectacles as well as humanity’s descent on the food chain, but honestly, while the themes are good, I really just appreciated the movie as a spectacle itself. It had one of the most horrifying scenes Peele has yet created (the “digestion” scene). And everything following that was perfectly suspenseful. The movie also had great acting, humor, and was just really well thought out…

    A near perfect display of character and dialogue. I was ready to believe this movie was, like a few of it’s time, simply highly rated for the influence and memory of it. But no, it’s just fantastic. There’s not much to it either - it’s just pure simple reason and character differentiation, but does a better job at those facets than almost any movie can do. My minor complaint, hence the half star off, is that there were a couple dubious arguments, but it was incredible nonetheless.

    Wow, people misinterpreting Cronenberg? People's only analysis being that this "is a return to form" or "Cronenberg bringing back body-horror"? Or even worse, that this is a self-parody of Cronenberg's style? Shocker. Boring and meaningless takes galore, but it is in no way surprising how most top reviews on here seems to be utterly devoid of any substance or analysis (both the positive and negative reviews). That's just what Cronenberg does to the masses I guess. Is it a slight…

    An amazing (and atypical for Cronenberg) look into the fetishization of culture. How it blinds the fetishizer and breaks the fetishized. It also delves deeply into imperialism, insanity, homoeroticism, art, and a variety of other complex topics. It's not one of his "great" films, but it seems to be highly underrated.
