Arlington Road is a dumb, overheated thriller pretending to be a smart, topical one.

Unfortunately, the rest of the film is not as well thought out or expertly executed as the shocking conclusion.

So filled with moronic intentions and illogical ideas that, had there been any truth to them, might have led audiences to believe that we live in the Twilight Zone.

The film's at its best before the convoluted plot kicks in, as neighbourliness gives way to suspiciousness and the men test each other's credentials.

Arlington Road succeeds at discomforting a viewer and making one apt to look over one's shoulder for a day or two.
