An American suburban development Post WWII is rattled when a new set of neighbors move in to their lily white community; meanwhile, Gardner (Matt Damon), Nicky (Noah Jupe), and sisters Rose and Margaret (Julianne Moore) have their own crisis to quelch in the face murder, theft, adultery, and being alive as part of the greatest generation, how can anyone possibly come out smelling like a rose?Written by Joel and Ethan Coen along with Grant Heslov and George Clooney and Directed by George Clooney, the look, tone, and timber all feel very Coen by construction, but the overall sustenance received from this gallop down memory lane unfortunately just doesn’t exist. Touted as a comedy by some and a mystery by others, the film doesn’t really seem to appear as either, except to perhaps leave the audience wondering where’s the comedy and irony we’ve come to expect from this production team? Furthermore disappointing in its overall execution, Suburbicon appears lacking in the magnetic X factor necessary to punch this seemingly easy field goal through the uprights. Suburbicon is rated R.

Heart surgeon Steven Murphy(Colin Farrell) is married to Anna (Nicole Kidman), they have two children Kim and Bob (Raffey Cassidy and Sunny Suljic), their life seems normal. But, when Martin (Barry Keoghan), the son of one of Steven’s patients starts hanging around the family, Steven is faced with making an unthinkable sacrifice in a Hammurabic way. Finding balance in chaos, will that even be possible? From Writer Director Yorgos Lanthimos, this disturbing and nightmarish endurance test rolls out calculated and metered delivery as the horror amplifies and magnifies calling in to question what’s fair, what’s right, clearing guilt, settling arrogance, and facing rage when faced with unreasonable forces. Conjuring up some of this year’s most disturbing and eye grating imagery, here’s your psychological horror just in time for Halloween, you’ve been warned. The Killing of a Sacred Deer is rated R.
