Cine TV Contest #35 - Favorite Film Villain
The director in the movie Us teaches us that latent evil can combine horror and excitement and can make us one of those who expect something to happen that can't be reality, so this movie will be a special experience for anyone who wants to have fun.
And if you are looking for an “elegant” horror meal, you can find it in the movie as well, but if you need a movie that talks to your mind and not your instincts, and answers deep questions that reverberate within you, you will definitely find what you are looking for in “US”.
When Adelaide was a child, she was shocked when she entered one of the horror houses that are usually available in amusement parks and games, and there she is surprised in a mirror room by a girl who looks like her, and she is terrified when she discovers that what she sees is not a reflection of her image in the mirror, which makes her lose her voice.
At this point, the story stops telling, and moves in time a great leap to find that "Adelaide" has grown up and regained her voice, but without the effects of that trauma going away from her, which will show its effects as she resists the pressures of her husband "Gabi" and her two children "Zora" and "Jason" To visit the family home on Santa Cruz Beach, where she was traumatized as a child.
With Adelaide responding to pressure, the family moves there to spend their annual holiday happily, before four holding hands, in red suits and scissors, knock on the family home at night. Brutality and anger, and they can't speak except for the lady among them who looks like "Adelaide", who tells the latter that they want to kill her family and take their place.
Soon, the Adelaide family escapes from the invaders' clutches and turns to the family of their friends Kitty and Josh Tyler, only to discover that they, too, have been subjected to a similar invasion by their carbon clones, apparently ensuring a mass invasion by the carbon clones against their like-minded city dwellers. fully.
With the escalation of the event, the film's dialogues and facts take us to a higher and deeper level of subtraction. What seemed terrifying was a thought-provoking entry raised by the premise of the film that the attackers are the evil replica of the attackers, which constitutes a preliminary understanding of what is between the lines of the film's story, and deciphering its first threshold, which is the name the film; "we".
The similarity with the contrast is just a first threshold for the text, which seems much deeper, and is based in its depth on the literalism of “Jordan Peel” in writing his text, which does not say everything he has at once, but rather he passes his thoughts and thus passes in the broadcast of his thoughts and messages, as he presents to the viewer an idea and dedicates it In his mind until the latter comprehends it, explains it and issues his judgments on it, before returning to surprise him with a new stream of events that in turn takes him to new points of the story, and inspires him with deeper ideas and readings than he had previously reached.
And here he is, after we have surrendered to the becoming of the story of "Adelaide" after she has grown up, he comes back to teach us what was cut off from her story when she was young, as we discover that the real child was captured in the mirror room, and whoever returned to the family is her antithesis, and the latter is the one who grew up in their custody and grew up She married Gabe and had two children, Zora and Jason.
This explains that among the red invaders there is no one who speaks only of the "Adelaide" lookalike, which is in fact "Adelaide" itself and not the lookalike, and also explains why the invaders simulate the intertwining of their hands for the "Hands Across America" campaign that took place in order to draw attention to the The Hungry and the Deprived In the same year that Adelaide was captured, she was, according to the film, the last thing the girl knew before she was replaced by the lookalike child.
In all these details lies the real pleasure of the film, it is a dialogue of ideas mixed with pleasure, does not practice theorizing on the viewer and does not forget his first task of entertainment, but it keeps him in a state of motivation always that there is something he has not said yet, and the viewer must pick it up.
