Suburbicon Reviews

October 17, 2019
It's a sweet, sweet romp with genuine suspense and cartoonish violence that aimed for a frolicsome good ride and hits its mark.

Suburbicon isn't always the most finely tuned of comedies... but the twists are brilliant, the score alternately suspenseful and moving and the message poignant.
May 8, 2018
A 1950s-tinged noir thriller with comical overtones... there are so many facets to this film that it can't help but keep us engaged.

...a solid film whose artistic composition stands out. [Full Review in Spanish]

"Suburbicon" references the McCarthy era American Dream where diversity meant white people infiltrating formerly rural areas in bland suburban sprawls of brainwashed conformity where right-wing racists could live in safe little echo chambers of their own.

To say more about the plot's twisty schemes and double crosses would be to spoil the fun of this flawed yet highly watchable B-movie.
December 18, 2017
This is a bracing exploration of the light and dark sides of American culture, cleverly delivering a searing message with wit and intelligence.
December 5, 2017
A film with a wonderfully complex first half deserves a second one that matches. The banal simplicity is what is off-putting. Still, Suburbicon is worth a watch for the spectacular performances.

It is in that tone of satire and nightmare where the film knows how to situate its static dummies. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 1, 2017
It could have been much more satisfying if Clooney and Heslov had stuck with the original plan and explored the timely real-life story Suburbicon is partly based on.
December 1, 2017
Suburbicon somewhat argues that we should persevere with Clooney as a director of scope and dexterity even if not everything he throws at the wall sticks.

... what is seen on the screen is not far from the reality that is lived today in the country governed by Donald Trump and in many parts of the world... [Full review in Spanish]
November 27, 2017
It's difficult to balance comedy, satire and thriller... and that's why Suburbicon, from the beginning, takes its time. [Full review in Spanish]
November 27, 2017
Maybe Clooney and the Coens are trying to make a point about how white privilege blocks out the rights and needs of an embattled part of society. Either way, it's perplexing stuff in an entertaining film that ends up trying a little too hard.
November 27, 2017
Suburbicon makes much of the venality lurking behind the carefully tended facades of post-war America's newly minted suburbia, and is not without its moments.
November 26, 2017
George Clooney's best movie since The Ides of March...
November 24, 2017
There were enough hints of Coens, a glimpse of Wes Anderson and a coating of Clooney's sense of humour here for me to have a really fun few hours with this grotesquely daft black comedy.
November 24, 2017
Clooney doesn't pull his punches in a film as tart as a squirt of lemon juice in your eye, black-hearted comedy rubbing shoulders with outraged social commentary as he lets loose a howl of despair.
November 23, 2017
Watchable, lively, intricately designed, but with exotic plot contrivances and parallel storylines that don't fully gel.
November 22, 2017
Suburbicon is a dark delight -- a film that keeps you guessing, as well as appalled and amused. And the less you know going in, the better.
