Suburbicon – Paradise has a Dark Side | KT Review

It Seems Idyllic

A slow build to quite a bit of action – I’m not talking car chases exactly but Suburbicon has its issues. And sometimes it seems like there’s only one way to solve them.


Between the perfect lawns and friendly locals, a tension is building as the first African-American family moves into the community. But as they settle in the new family start to see the darker side of their new community. With unprecedented violence and unnatural deaths, Suburbicon is not as perfect as it at first seemed.

Starring  Matt Damon (Jason Bourne, The Martian)Julianne Moore (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Seventh Son)Oscar Isaac (Annihilation, X-Men: Apocalypse), Noah Jupe (Penny Dreadful, The Night Manager), and Glenn Fleshler (Billions, Hannibal). And directed by George Clooney.

Suburbicon Review Conclusion

I’d watch it again – If you ever wanted a film that reminded you of Sunday afternoon with your grandparents in front of the TV then this is it. And I don’t mean because this is the era you were a kid in. Suburbicon reminded me of old technicolour films with James Stewart or Marilyn Monroe. That played at 2 pm when there were only four channels and at least two of the other channels had sport on. With a little blood, a little murder, and a healthy dose of suspicion, all set on a carefully constructed plot.

4 stars
