    Suburbicon is a solid, pleasing piece, even if it never quite reaches the bleak heights its set-up promises. 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 not only unfunny, a bad sign for a black comedy, but deep-dyed dislikable. show more
