    The movie cuts back and forth between the two, and their themes speak to one another in some ways, but the competing narratives barely intersect. At times, it seems as if director and co-writer George Clooney made a movie where separate but equal is not only the subtext but also the organizing principle. show more

    Suburbicon is just too obvious in its satirical depiction of the dubious morality and social inequality behind the squeaky-clean fa├žade of postwar American life, though it's watchable enough, and a distinct improvement for Clooney on his last directorial outing. show more

    Suburbicon is a solid, pleasing piece, even if it never quite reaches the bleak heights its set-up promises. show more
