Take a look behind the scenes at Nope

I never imagined it when I watched the first episode of Key & Peele that America’s next great horror director was right under my nose. During the first season of Jordan Peele’s sketch show, I was a weekly viewer and thought the scope of his genius was only in comedy. After the final curtain on the series, I thought a movie career was not far off, but I shrugged off Peele as an artist, not an author. And then I saw Out.

Peele’s creative sensibilities have always had to do with race, but since becoming a film director, he’s given a new wrinkle to an old conversation. Out didn’t just feel like a black story; it felt like my story. Was it because I took a white girl as a date to see the movie? That’s a possibility, but I think the film appealed to me because of Peele’s ability to emphasize the nuance of race in America. Obviously, the cogs in his mind never stop turning.
