Suburbicon

George Clooney directs this 1950s-set noir, co-written by himself and the Coen brothers. Stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis).

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 (Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence.

I frankly don't know why Suburbicon happened. I do know that pulpy black comedy combined with a straight-ahead story of racism translates into sanctimonious pulp.

It’s a movie that reels the audience in and keeps it hooked: with smart little kicks of surprise.

Director George Clooney raids a leftover script by the Coen brothers that lacks the snap of their more vicious crime comedies.

It’s a hectic, sour and muddled film – a flailing counterfeit of satire that keeps slipping on its own banana skin supply, and never remotely gets to grips with what it thinks it’s sending up.

Suburbicon is too lightweight and mannered; it lacks proper fury. Watching it is like having your trouser-leg savaged by an energetic small dog.

Just too obvious in its satirical depiction of the dubious morality and social inequality behind the squeaky-clean façade of postwar American life, though it's watchable enough...

...despite evoking the period through great design work, the film just doesn't live up to the sum of its parts.
