Last year's cunning and skillful Green Room didn't receive any awards season acknowledgment, but the bloody thriller came closer than any other movie to capturing the troubled mood of 2016. Now comes another timely genre film, Jordan Peele's Get Out, opening Friday in Bay Area theaters. More than just a standard-issue thriller copied from the current template of popular tropes, it shows a commanding boldness that sets it apart, making it an essential movie of its moment. Daniel Kaluuya, who starred in a memorable episode of Black Mirror and was Emily Blunt's partner in the excellent Sicario, stars as Chris, a talented black photographer. He is dating pretty white girl Rose (Allison Williams) and preparing for a drive to visit Rose's parents, doctor Dean (Bradley Whitford) and hypnotherapist Missy (Catherine Keener).
