Janelle Monáe:

    “Antebellum” is a bold move: It’s a horror movie about slavery that makes few weighty comments about it. A purely entertaining, scary flick will infuriate the culturati who like their movies like they like their Atlantic articles: long and academic. However, despite some issues, this Janelle Monáe film is a breathless watch. “Antebellum” bears a certain resemblance to this year’s “The Hunt,” which was about a group of gun-toting elites who killed “deplorables” for sport. I hated every minute of “The Hunt,” which had all the life and soul of a crowbar, but “Antebellum” corrects many of the former flick’s unfortunate flaws. The performances, led by a captivating Monáe, are wholly committed, rather than smugly self-aware. Although the movie has pockets...

    Directors Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz open their horror debut feature Antebellum with an eight-minute immersive shot that brutally subjugates both the audience and the characters. It starts with a little white girl in a yellow dress, skipping through a lush field toward a white plantation house. While Nate Wonder and Roman Gianarthur’s unnervingly uptempo string score struts away, the camera tracks past Confederate soldiers raising the stars and bars, then to wooden rows of slave quarters. The images juxtapose the seemingly idyllic sun-soaked plantation with the forlorn incarceration of slavery. A Black man in a slave collar screams as grey-coated men hold him at bay. In slow motion, a captain rides on horseback after a fleeing Black woman,...
