October 11, 2019
The dreamy, feverish, distinctly L.A. atmosphere in this serial-killer character study conceals a predictable, even banal screenplay.

It's difficult to imagine how Bloodline got made, given how its premise makes it feel like little more than an ill-fated pilot for a "Dexter" reboot.

I would not recommend this to the everyday filmgoer mostly in part to the heavy dollop of graphic imagery. But if you're looking for a slow simmer with an odd aftertaste, by all means, watch Bloodline.

As a stressed-out high school guidance counselor who helps his students by murdering their abusive relatives, Scott walks a fine line between sympathetic and sinister, in a film that never really finds its purpose.

Thanks to a great lead performance, a balanced handle of gore and violence, Bloodline is a fantastic character piece. A darkly twisted study of the ties of family and the lengths we'll go to protect them.
