That obviously had a big impact on our approach to the way we wanted to show it as being sort of a magical place, and that also came from Jimmie and his character. Every so often, he and Mont, as we see them do in the beginning, they take this journey from the outskirts of San Francisco, literally the furthest corner of the furthest point back into the heart of the city, to the old castle that he once lived in. Jonathan in his brilliance, when he comes out on the balcony and he says to him you look like King Jimmie each time he waved; that was all improvised by Jonathan but he really understood that scene on a deep level and it comes out in improv moments like that.
One of my favorite scenes in the film is when Mont essentially directs the guys who hang out on the corner all the time and essentially act as a counterpoint or Greek chorus in the film. Jonathan is wonderful to work with. Everything has so much conviction; every line he reads, and he gets very particular about them.
Originally he was supposed to cross the street and perform a magic trick as a distraction and on some level he did essentially the same thing. He took on the energy that was coming to Kofi but he always felt like Montgomery is observing the world as theater; everything is theatrical to him and of course an hour and a half of observations throughout the film all of that comes out then finally and expressed by him in his play.
I think those guys have more layers than what we see in that moment even though the guys were sort of leading the bullying of Kofi all have complicated feelings about that inside. Some of that confusion by them was somewhat genuine because there was no script to look to about what he might be doing. Jimmie, your character wears pretty much the same clothes throughout the film. What does that hat and shirt tell us about the character? JF: Joe made it. It grew on me. I was very inspired by Brando in On the Waterfront with the beanie hat, the kind of longshoreman sort of look and there were a lot of longshoreman in San Francisco, black longshoreman, so it was kind of supposed to be like that sort of thing.
The magnificent Victorian house is so important to the film, really a character in the film. What was it like to be inside it? S o when we found that one and the owner was so nice to let us in. JF: The library for sure. Even for the scene with Jimmie and his mom, it was like wanting to shoot that in a way that both felt honest and real.

Peele has proven that he's not a one-hit-wonder with this truly terrifying, poignant look at one American family that goes through hell at the hands of maniacal doppelgangers". Richard Brody of The New Yorker called the film a "colossal achievement," writing that, " Us is a horror film—though saying so is like offering a reminder that The Godfather is a gangster film or that A Space Odyssey is science fiction.
Genre is irrelevant to the merits of a film, whether its conventions are followed or defied; what matters is that Peele cites the tropes and precedents of horror in order to deeply root his film in the terrain of pop culture—and then to pull up those roots. The Luniz song "I Got 5 on It" is featured in this movie, first at the beginning, when the family is driving to Adelaide's family vacation home and later on in the film, when the family of tethered break into the vacation home. The once-fun song transmogrifies into an eerie "Tethered Mix", slowing things down, and fully indulging the ominous quality of the film.
Peele, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly , said "I'm making a movie in Northern California, that's a Bay Area hip-hop classic". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Theatrical release poster. Monkeypaw Productions  Perfect World Pictures.
