Nope ★★★★½

Less on the literal and metaphorical horror, where the terror triggers audiences to close their eyes or look away, Nope offers entirely something different—the spectacle of the unknown that compels us, not just to look at the terror directly, but to observe, stare, and document them. Because in this era where our reality is more often more sinister than fiction, nothing is more modernly accurate and morbid. We fear our relationships more than the unknown, technology more than nature, poverty more than inequality, surveillance more than ignorance. The result is horror as a spectacle, where eventually it is our obsession—and pursuit of the impossible—that leads to our demise. And my god, what a spectacle this film is.
