Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s third film is a singular blend of creature feature and Western noir that betrays its adverse one-word title. Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer play sparring siblings whose family’s horse ranch in remote Agua Dulce has been supplying animals for pictures since the silent era. But the sudden and strange death of patriarch Keith David finds the duo closely encountering all kinds of strange phenomena. A sci-fi cowboy saga against a backdrop of American popular culture—sitcoms, Mad magazine, theme parks and band T-shirts—Nope doesn’t just evoke the Black Western, it completely reinvents it.

DIRECTED/WRITTEN BY: Jordan Peele. WITH: Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Steven Yeun. 2022. 130 min. USA. Color. English. Rated R. 70mm.
