Master (Mariama Diallo – 2022) B

The mixing of horror and race commentary is a very good combo. One of the best is Jordan Peele’s Get Out. Master is playing in a similar field with the setting being an elite east coast private college. It’s a movie that I liked a lot more when I was watching it and thought it might leave more of an impact but it does not for me. While it is brilliant in portraying the feeling of being a minority in a predominantly white college, the horror elements feel muddled and I am not sure how some of the story elements fit together. On the other hand the performances all around, the look and feel of this movie are enough to recommend it.
