Get the Fuck Outta Here: A Dialogue on Jordan Peele’s GET OUT
Son of Baldwin

Although you touched on the use of black bodies in ‘Get Out,’ it’s important to note the scene when Walter the Caretaker/grandfather was running top speed in the middle of the night. I think Walter the Caretaker/grandfather was reliving the moment he ran against Jesse Owens in the Olympics and lost. Now he runs in an athletic black body which he controls. Yes, there are levels to this as the kids say.
