    ★★★½

    Slow yet charged with frantic energy and a genuinely unexpected twist. Of course its a classic and the classic scenes are classic, and doesn't feel dated in the slightest. Maybe I'm just not as big on psychological horror than the more visceral possibilities of the medium.

    ★★½

    Can't say I remember too much of it outside of the ending and the supporting actress. Decent enough to maintain your attention but none of the excitement or depth to make it memorable.

    ★★★★½

    Thoroughly entertaining and captivating. A tightly wound story that pays off in every way, especially after another watch hunting for easter eggs and hints. The immersion with the main character (Kaluuya is pretty good!) that happens both visually and narratively is extremely well done, and the moments of both eery fear and sharp terror are communicated amazingly well. Well deserved Oscar and exciting directorial debut!

    ★★★★

    Maybe a little too sad for life. Wonderfully shot, a few metaphors fly over my head. Overall enjoyable cinematic experience, obviously a lot of thought put into this despite the Book of Job bashing over your head.
