Description

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns…the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices. This is Suburbicon.

    Not sure why the negative reviews for this movie. I enjoyed it. It’s definitely worth a watch.
  • Sad directoral debut

    Sorry George, we love your acting, we love the choices you make (usually), and we love the Coen brothers too. Together we figured a sure-fire hit - but what happened? This is garbage. It has no redeeming value and it butchered the credibility of good actors. The script was a hideous mishmash of weak cliches, none of which worked, and then edited together like a patchwork quilt. Perhaps it didn’t help that we watched this after several weeks of Academy screeners, tough competition to be sure, but if this is a direction that you want to pursue, just look at that vast catalogue that made you who you are, and perhaps start with something that won’t alienate your fans.

    Could only make it throught the first 30 minutes and had to stop. Why did I waste 30 minutes at all or my money on this?!?! Terrible would a be a difinite step up. Paint drying would be more entertaining.

    I don’t want to say much about this movie other then it was a strange political statement movie with extremely bad writing! It has a horrible plot, there is no point to anything in the movie really, don’t be fooled by the trailer, in no way is this a comedy!!!

    In a time of social justice overload people need to have a sense of humor. This movie had some laugh out loud moments but some very twisted ones too. If you liked the movie or tv show Fargo you would probably like this. Not what I expected but was a pleasant surprise.

    Clooney should be ashamed of himself for allowing this movie to see the light of day. They bring in a racial component that serves no purpose.
  • Not a comedy

    I figured it would be odd but it was really odd. I’m not really into dramas and that’s what I would call this. Between the reviews of this movie and the movie itself- just a total downer. This movie was never going to make an impact on the people it was marketed to.
  • Classic Noir

    By A.W.Thomas
    This story is classic 1940s-50s style noir, such as Double Indemnity, with shallow cut-out characters making dumb decisions they think are smart, and getting caught up in their own web of lies and entanglements (anyone who follows crime in the real world will recognise these actions as pretty common). Emotional reactions to strong situations tend to be completely missing, and others to less serious things overblown, and characters don't notice things that should be obvious. If you are a fan of noir this is your thing, but if you are looking for realism, you will miss the point, which is the tension, and the tension is heighted by the seemingly idiotic decisions which drawn the viewer in becasue it is obvious to them (Similar to why people in horror films do the dumbest things , Hey let's split up!) It's not meant to be realistic. My feeling that it not many people liked it because they don't understand the genre, or are too used to fake realism like the Avengers type movies. I truly enjoyed this film for its noir elements, and it is also wonderfully shot an acted. It is a great MOVIE.

    This is the first time I’ve ever written a review of a movie but wow, Suburbicon inspired me. What a crap movie. The story is so boring and worse it takes forever to get going.
