    ★★★★½

    This movie affects you in a way that makes it physically painful to experience, but in a good way.

    I love the soundtrack. It’s tragic and emotional. One of the best music score I’ve heard in a while. 

    The movie is depressing, it’s dark, and it’s dirty, but it’s also poetic and beautiful at the same time. Storytelling at its finest. Do yourself a favor and go see this movie.

    Jordan Peele is a motherfckin’ GENIUS!

    And my favorite part; the music score. 
    Holy shit, the music is just too good! It’s so terrifying and creepy,…
