    Us is a movie FULL of metaphors and hidden meanings that we will be analyzing for a long time to come. Today, I want to tackle what I think is the message at the heart of the film; the main theme that Jordan Peele was trying to drill into our minds - not literally of course, he's not a Tethered... or is he? Loyal Theorists, today we are breaking down the nightmare of the American dream that is the movie Us.

    And also Jordan Peele is rich, and probably has a lot of stuff. Why not practice what you preach and stop making movies. He's just another hollyweirdo showing all us bad American how much better he is than US!

    10:26 "Their stuff isn't doing good in the world... It's a weapon"

    Yes, a weapon, that is literally saving their lives from murderous clones... Seems, uh, to be doing good to me. Also saying everything relates to the idea of "being american" is kinda stupid considering that it actually relates to "existing as a human being with desires".

    There is NOTHING american about, I dunno, wanting stuff? Unless you think literally everyone out of america are some perfect being that hardly resemble humans, which, spoiler, we aren't.

    Also the idea that nothing changed when she was replaced? She stopped speaking, at she was taken to therapy by her parents who clearly assumed something was wrong.

    This movie creeped me out for a lot of reasons, but it’s mainly because my name is Gabe Wilson and I don’t like that they used my name even though it’s 100% a coincidence
