For this episode we’re talking about Nope, the new movie written and directed by Jordan Peele. Known for his horror movies Get Out and Us, Peele’s new movie follows a brother and sister who own a horse ranch where they train their animals to perform in movies. When their ranch is terrorized by a mysterious thing in the sky, the siblings set out to document just what it is up there in the clouds.

Our ATMI film critics got together on Zoom to talk about Nope, the themes it explores, Peele’s status as one of the most prominent modern horror directors, and just what is going on with Gordy in the movie.

Hosted by Edison Wallace-Moyer.
