Suburbicon is a horror film, but the monster is us.

His viewpoint here jibes with the general efforts of the Democratic Party and its pseudo-left hangers-on to paint the mass of the American population as hopelessly backward, if not overtly racist.

A story about a home-invasion and its aftermath... but it's a struggle to pin down the film's genre, its theme, or what the writers are trying to say.

The dream team got together for a movie and in the end, the result was a wreck.
September 23, 2020
A terrible mistake in scripting that actually hides an interesting story. Or stories. [Full review in Spanish].
August 19, 2020
A mixture of the racial tones, the murderous plot and the humour makes this a confusing mess of storytelling.

Clooney has proven himself talented enough a filmmaker to tell compelling stories, but with his latest endeavor he is in conflict with the message he's trying to get across.
July 1, 2020
"Suburbicon" wants to be a witty satire of suburban living, a commentary on race relations in America, and a tense murder mystery. A toothless, tedious disappointment, it fails on all accounts.

It's as ridiculous as it is ugly.

Clooney effectively blends 50's era whimsy with coal-black comedy beats and noir thrills, all while satirizing 2017's political landscape.

The film could be described as a mix of Fargo and Blood Simple by the way of Tim Burton. It's undeniably entertaining but is hard to shake the feeling we have seen all this before.

It's a sweet, sweet romp with genuine suspense and cartoonish violence that aimed for a frolicsome good ride and hits its mark.

'Suburbicon' is a missed opportunity because it wants to cover too many different things and doesn't know how to do it in a natural way. [Full Review in Spanish]

Given the ghastly result, perhaps the Coens should sue, since it's almost inconceivable that their original idea bore much resemblance to a debacle that unexpectedly has emerged as one of the year's worst films.
June 25, 2019
Basically, repeatedly working with the Coens didn't turn Clooney into a Coen any more than his playing a doc on E.R. means I'd let him near me with a scalpel.
June 4, 2019
An uneven, often unpleasant satire that comes across as a pale imitation of the Coens' distinctive style.
May 8, 2019
Comedy is not effectively mixed with a serious thriller, ruining many potential tense moments; leaving the audience confused as to what emotion they should be feeling.
February 8, 2019
"Suburbicon," a film that, despite checking a lot of the right boxes, simply isn't very good.
February 6, 2019
Suburbicon could've been a great, funny, socially conscious film. Regrettably, it's just not that deep. It's a pretty random film that probably lives up to the expectations of the Cohen brothers.

... holds a grip until a certain point but ultimately fails to deliver.
