"Working with cinematographer Toby Oliver, Peele creates images that are beautiful and terrifying"
The New Yorker
“Peele’s perfectly tuned cast and deft camera work...with his first film, he’s already an American Buñuel.”
"Australian cinematographer Toby Oliver shoots the film with intense close-ups and a beautifully muted color pallette, and gives the film a visual style essential to its success."
"Scares meet racially charged satire in instant horror classic; A jolt-a-minute horroshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit. How is one movie all that?"
“What a watershed feat Peele has pulled off, delivering such a gloriously twisted thriller that simultaneously has so much to say about the state of affairs in post-Obama America.”
“he proves to be a strong visual artist as a director, finding unique ways to tell a story that goes increasingly off the rails - Peele displays a skill with horror action that I didn’t know he had.”
