Suburbicon

Rated R 105 minutes 2017

Sure it’s a shambles, but this satirical shock-a-palooza about a racially bigoted 1950s suburb is a fascinating shambles. George Clooney directs a screenplay he wrote with Joel and Ethan Coen and Grant Heslov, about two competing crime scenes in the title community – a violent home invasion incident (with Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Noah Jupe), and the incredibly hateful reception a black family gets when they dare to move into their new home. Young performer Jupe takes the acting prize, with strong support from Oscar Isaac, Glenn Fleshler, Alex Hassell, Karima Westbrook, and Gary Basaraba as fellow Suburbicon-ites. But Clooney and the writers never quite manage to satisfactorily stitch together the two story threads, and all we come away with is a sick feeling about the moral frailty of human beings – which is probably the point after all (104 min., 2017, rated R)
