Plot: Suburbicon seems like the idyllic place to raiser your family in 1959 - peace and quiet with well-manicured lawn and identical housing. But husband and father Gardner Lodge doesn't see that. A dead wife, mob enforcers and angry mobs - it may look perfect from the outside, but underneath lies a whole other, dangerous world. -- Chris Kavan

A wannabe genre-mashup that instead becomes a trainwreck. George Clooney has always been a mediocre director, it needs to be said. Even his most acclaimed films aped from other better filmmakers. In this case, SUBURBICON clearly aims to be a satirical black comedy in the mold of the Coen Brothers. But the script lacks the tonal consistency, the sophistication, the ironic wit, or even the charm of seeing a folksy rendition of Americana on film again. Amusingly, the reportedly shoehorned subplot about racism in the all-white community is the most interesting part of the otherwise dull and unpleasant movie.

“The only thing Suburbicon is missing is you.
Isn’t it time for your new start?
Come home to Suburbicon.”
It doesn’t happen often, but now I had a feeling I didn’t really understand what I’d watched. Not that “Suburbicon” was a complicated, incomprehensible film. But I didn’t know what the initial intention was of the filmmakers? Was it meant to bring a socially critical message? Or was it a satirical view of an American society during the 50s with its tidy, decent neighborhoods and good-humored citizens? Or was it simply a crazy crime story with a fraudulent twist? Ultimately, in my eyes it was a mix of all of this, with not one facet that stands out. It’s a bundling of mediocrities. And the two mixed stories seem to have nothing to do with each other. It …
