First off: Fuck Red! Fuck her in her big red suit, brown sandal wearing, blond eyebrow, golden shear stabbin’ ass! Fuck her sooooo much. Secondly, this is not a movie. It’s a fairy tale. So view it that way.
Don’t scrutinize this movie to the ends of the Earth because it unravels completely with the pull of one jumpsuit thread. Think about how much you dig into the logic of Hansel and Gretel or Pinocchio. Exactly, you don’t because you know it is a work of fiction meant to tell a story, question a norm, or teach a lesson.
US is a story based on some uncomfortable truths. But the beauty is those truths get questioned, challenged, and ultimately reinforced.
With an IMDB rating of 6.9/10, Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer of 93% and Audience Score of 60%, I give US a solid 7.2/10. What happens after the story of US ends? Now that’s a movie I’d like to see.
