Great job showing racism in America. The horrific history that gets overlooked by whites. But the rest of the movie, Lol absolutely terrible. The random rogue fire truck? Pure comedy.
Just a brutal movie. Matt Damon, Oscar Isaac, and Noah Jupe do the best with what they were given, but the story, supporting cast, and writing around them was just pure awful. Avoid watching this if you can.
It's terrible from start to finish, there's nothing positive to say about it.
Suburbicon is set in an idyllic 1950's small American town where everyone gets along, has decent jobs and are living the American dream. When the first African American family move into the neighbourhood the residents are in uproar, convinced they will change their way of life and the values they hold dear. While the police and residents are preoccupied with this new family they fail to notice a trail of violence, betrayal and deceit running within their own community from the well respected and thought of Lodge family.
I really enjoyed this, it's a mix of social satire, racial commentary and murder mystery, all put together with style. Julianne Moore and Matt Damon were decent choices for their roles but i won't say anymore than that because of spoilers. It's directed by George Clooney and written by the Coen Brothers and so if you have seen any of their previous collaborations then you know the kind of movie you're getting.
Maybe a bit predictable, and over the top at times. But I’m actually very surprised this has such bad reviews. I think it’s very well done and entertaining.
Took interesting topics and completely missed on all of them, the ideas were intriguing such as the murder mystery aspects and racial tension, but none of it worked. The racists who hate the one black family in the neighborhood are randomly in the duration of the movie while the murder mystery is going on with the main family. It is inputted for no reason other than a lazy attempt at social commentary regarding race. The movie couldn't chose if it wanted to be funny or serious. There were some light moments that didn't fit in the context at all, and the pairing of comedy and suspense/dread didn't collide well. The movie could of been better if it focused on one storyline and if it stuck with one tone as well.
Dark....just too dark
Simply awful. Dark comedy - absolutely not.
One of the worse films that I have seen
What a brave and refreshing films! I did like how they integrated real old news footages in the film to back up the context of a white racist America in the 50s. Very clever. And Matt Damon is great as a psychopathic dad paying his immediate karmic debts.
The themes of SUBURBICON are pretty clear, but it all comes off feeling like they missed something to tie it all together.
