    Yeah starting with the stuff about the black family and then fading it out, I felt like the filmmakers were justifying the treatment they receive. Whether intentional or not.

    Is this guy always this racist when he reviews movies? Typical hebrew.

    I feel like the riots and the racism elements were just there to show how blind people are. I mean they were literally so focused on terrorizing an innocent black family. That they just completely looked over the insane white family that is literally fuckin murdering each other in the house next door.

    Can someone explain the ending of this movie to me? It's almost like the screenwriters did not know how to end it. Did Matt Damon die from sleeping pill overdose (from the food)? Where did the kid go? Where did the town's sherrif/cop go? And what was that while hyper-racism sub-plot? I am confused.

    If you don't know the difference between portrayal of the 50s vs 60s, you should be making movie reviews.

    Im not a band wagoner i actually really liked this movie...theres a deeper meaning if you actually look and its really clever. Plus do not treat this as a movie treat it as a stage play and enjoy.

    This is messed up, but from GC.. I am just boomhacked by this. Yes, the plot twists are reasonable, but it's a mess of death, bad plots, and full on a mix of sub plots. 1/10..

    Super misleading trailer. I'm with you the set up was to long and unimportant to the the overall story. Either be about a black family moving into a white neighborhood or be about white people insurance scam. But not both since they have nothing to do with each other

    Although it was a little underwhelming, it wasn't as bad as Jeremy made it seem. The social element was interesting to me. They needed to execute the narrative better. But I'd say it's a solid watch if you have the time.

    I just finished it and it was a surprise. The black family was a bait to make you think something would happen but nope. The movie just shocked me so I like it, it could of been done better but it's alright

    What was the point of the black family subplot? Why were they so nice? Why not a dindo family that terrorizes the community and causes white flight. They could then end up with a mini Chicago.

    i don't get why the review is so low its not a bad movie. The movie is not what you see in the trailer which i think is smart.

  • John Ravasio
    John Ravasio 8 months ago

    I completely agree with your review! This movie was a complete dud. Boring. A terrific concept, but just didn't tie together in the movie at all. No Great Character arcs to follow. And we didn't really care about the main plot. It was all just too obvious, even without any explanation.

    I never understood why they had the black (African American) family in the movie? it made no sense to the plot other than....nope! got nothing .. the main plot was the kid finding out that his dad lied to him! The damn movie could've been made with an all black cast for crying out loud and I still would of still come to the same conclusion of the movie.


    This is not a comedy at all. Very serious very dark

    Gee, I didn't feel as though it was boring. It kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the first viewing. It was great the second time, too! I didn't really see it as a dark comedy, though. I am actually quite surprised that so many people dislike it.

    Totally agree -- the whole "racism" thing could have been left out and it wouldn't have changed the movie ONE BIT (except to make it shorter). It was completely inane to the actual plot, which then caused it to come off as randomly preachy and accusatory. This movie, in a nutshell, was 2 hours of my life that I'd like to get back.

    Wow jahns. I like your reviews but this movie really was over your head. The racial plot wasn't just a miniscule side plot. It literally was meant to show you how this country is, then and now. How ppl make a huge deal about a black family in town, when in actuality, it's the higher class white family next door the ones that are sick. It's acually quite telling. U just missed it.

    One of the rare movies I actually watched pausing three times. I watch movies on my pc mostly bit by bit. I pause and resume a lot and it takes me a week to actually finish a movie. I do other things on the pc such as programming and gaming. This movie was actually good enough that I watched it within 3 hours pausing the movie only three times. I think it was pretty darn good and deserves a higher scrore than its 5.5/10 on imdb. I'd give it a 7.5/10. Felt sorry for the little boy all the way through. I'd recommend the movie.

  • Yedidiya K

    I disagree, I think this movie was great. The movie wasn't about different parts trying to be their own. It was a perfect juxtaposition between the lives of the two kids and how even though their lives are horrible, they have baseball they can share. It starkly contrasts the evil and absurdity of life, them playing baseball at the end was a way for the movie, or Coen brothers to says that laughing at absurdity is the only cure.

    I think this movie was just trying to get a meaning across. While everyone was focused on dealing with a simple problem with black people in the neighbourhood, a much bigger problem was going on. It's trying to address our life today, how we get so focused on something so small that something big somewhere else happens causing more problems.

    The trailer sold something completely different. The movie utterly undercuts the real life story it's part based upon and tries really hard to interweave two separate stories that don't blend well, if at all. Great review Mr Jahns, keep up the good work please.

  • Amber Edwards

    The movie was meant to be a modern day spin on racial inequities. The neighborhood is so concerned about this black family moving into this neighborhood but in actuality one neighbor has just killed his wife in a plot to collect insurance money. It was very disappointing though, given the amount of talent from this veteran cast👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

  • Virgilia Wheeler

    I went in never seeing a trailer or hearing anything about it. I quite enjoyed it. The trailer makes it seem like something it's not. So I think it threw people off who saw the trailer first.

    I'd resisted downloading this film because of the rating, but hey, not all ratings reflect quality right? I hadn't even bothered to see it was Coen bros but if I'd bothered to see C-Looney had had his precocious tender little (zzzzzz) hand in it I wouldn't have wasted the miniscule bandwidth I already had. Arrogance on a fucking stick. Coen bros going to have to redeem themselves mightily from this pile of shit and Clooney? Go fuck your egotistic self. Oh, and my commiserations to those who actually paid for it. Bwaaaaahahahaaaa.

    I found it reasonably entertaining. I found it hard to follow the plot, but I found the suspense worked in somee places, but I agree that it's 3 movies in one. The black family were completely irrelevant to the main plot apart from expanding in the expectations of the neighborhood.

    It's still worth a watch, and I thought the inclusion of the black family opens up a range of interpretations which would otherwise leave the film completely one note and boring. They were one of my favourite inclusions if I'm honest.

  • Larry Singleton

    While I love watching movie reviews. Never depend on the critics. At least if you're like me. I leave my brain at the door when I watch movies. I don't try and pick it apart. I just sit there and go "duh" for an hour and a half or so.
    However there are movies that aren't worth watching. And that seems to be the majority of them made today. But I guess I'm bias. I grew up watching the spectaculars of the 50's and 60's and I love the movies from the 30's and 40's.
    Add to that I'm hard of hearing and the movies made today are just shit. It seems like whatever they make, a documentary or a movie they've got to smother it with "dramatic" "music" from beginning to frigging end. Add to THAT the actors today sound like they're talking with a mouth full of marbles or whispering. Question: Why is it that I can understand every word of dialogue in a movie made in the 30's, 40's and 50's but when the 70's and 80's hit it just all started going to crap? Maybe it had something to do with actors back then being "theater" trained or something, I don't know. I just know the actors today don't speak clearly and most of the time I need subtitles to watch the frigging things.
    Oh yeah; If you want to plug a recent Western, go head on. The few made today that I've tried to watch absolutely stunk. Except for Tombstone and a couple of others of course.

  • Syklone
    Syklone Year ago

    The way I see it, Cloony is in a position that he can do what he wants and not have to bother about critical reception. It doesn't look like my sort of film anyway so I'll not be watching it, but it must be nice to just do something and know it's only for creative fun and if it tanks then there will still be food on the table the next day. His celebrity probably got him to that position in the first place, but the flipside is that it's always going to be under the microscope.

  • Mandy Olsen

    Very deep and good movie. Not like the trailers but still full of plot twists and a good amount of action. Very Hitchcock and Kubrick. Unique films like this are rare and I give this film a 90/100

    Suburbicon: A movie about how a 50s white family can get away with crime, and be respected, while a black family can be blamed for everything by doing nothing.
    Two storylines seemingly unrelated through narrative, but thematically confronts each other about race and crime, and overall questions what society sees as idyllic and the norm

    • King J777
      King J777 3 months ago

      I just saw this, I got the premise the first moment I saw the movie. I think the movie took too long to establish the that in fact Matt Damon and the Aunt were the real bad guys is the bad guy and the black family is the victims. But clearly, there was no hero to follow. Maybe if the white young boy had more interaction with the whole family esp the black mother and father and they could give him the love he could never get from his biological family, then at the end instead of them throwing the ball which was cool.- They could have had him come over and help clean up from the riot and have breakfast. The two worlds needed to collide in this film to make the commentary land home. the boy should have seen the black woman get discriminated against Then the boy would have been the eyes of the new current social view on racism and how we should witness and try to stop it.

    • Elena Savva

      I thought the same. I guess this is why i go and see reviews everytime i finish a movie. I love seeing other people's perspective. And i guess most movies are about that. Some critics are on point, and some are not. You always see the movie you just watched from different dimensions tho.

    I actually enjoyed this movie. I actually went on my first date taking a girl out to go watch subericon. The first half hour was slow, but the characters were very well portrayed and the movie was funny when the movie called for it. Me and my date enjoyed the movie very much, and even if i don't remember the plot 20 years from now i"ll always remember the movie because it had special sentimental value to me.

  • Bharat Penumutchu

    Piece of Shit ....I asked the movie theatre for refund seriously. .what were they trying to achieve. ..a moral lesson saying scumbags are scumbags regardless of race ?...If the trailers had it like a serious tone that tackles social stereotypes. . ..I would have been content. ..there was no comedy there just an eerie feeling.. I was expecting another Burn After Reading....rather it was a huge Burn After Watching a huge f×÷%you to the audience.PLEASE DO NOT GO...I LIKE MATT DAMON JULIAN MOORE..PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM IT..

  • Jesus Penaloza
    Jesus Penaloza Year ago

    The point of having the racial tension in the movie with the black family moving in was that even though so many things happening in Matt Damon’s house hat no one noticed because they were so focused on the black family. It was talking about how that’s the way it is in society that people are focusing on something that doesn’t really matter when a lot worse things are happening right under their noses.
