Nope’s Jordan Peele Finally Answered A Lingering Question About The Movie


Of all of Jordan Peele’s movies, Nope seems to be his most divisive with critics and fans alike. While the audience’s initial reactions to the spectacle-focused horror movie were primarily positive, many have sounded off their frustration with the film’s unanswered mysteries. Well, the filmmaker is finally answering some of those lingering questions, including the mystery of the floating shoe. 

The director and his Nope cinematographer, Hoyte Van Hoytema, appeared on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast to talk about a variety of the film’s spoilers. The host, Josh Horowitz, held nothing back by asking the movie maker, “What the hell’s going on with the shoe?” Jordan Peele answered candidly about what that floating shoe meant to him, and revealed an answer to one of the movie’s many mysteries. According to the Get Out director, the precarious floating footwear represents a moment for the audience and Steven Yeun’s Jupe to “check out” from his traumatic backstory. The director explained:

The shoe represents a moment of where we check out of a trauma. And Jupe, he zones in on this little shoe, that’s Mary Jo’s shoe, that has landed in a precarious, odd situation. And this is the moment that he disassociates. So the shoe for me is, in essence, in one way it’s the impossible shot. That’s an impossible moment.
