          I think it's thematic meaning is pretty transparent. I also think that because it forces you to view it as allegory, it does fail in one area, which is in the immediacy of its presentation. It feels like a story, not an experience. Here's my review:

                        Tether, verb:

                        To tie (an animal) or to chain down with a rope or such to restrict it’s movements.

                        In theory, wasn’t everyone in the movie tied down, or tethered, to the idea of gaining more; both the family and the tethered?

                        Phenomenal job, MatPat, I love this theory. All of them. Matter of fact... Subbed.

                              I just watched this in my English class :)
                              After we finished the movie my class started to ask questions out of confusion about how Addy and her tethered (whose name is Red btw) swapped. Especially the fact about how Jason caught on before the audience.
                              Overall, it's an amazing movie and I want to watch it again.

                                                        Jordan Peele is a truly talented director. I wish more moden horror movies were like his, but instead they're bags of crap.

Don't get me wrong, I do see that it is well-made and quite clever at times but its story had way too many plot-holes in it. I think metaphors only work if the surface-level story of the movie also works, which - for me, at least - wasn't the case with Us.
