Suburbicon

Oct 24, 17 Suburbicon

 

In Cinemas OCTOBER 26

SYNOPSIS:

Suburbicon is a picture-perfect 1950s suburb where the best and worst of humanity is reflected through the deeds of ordinary people. But when a home break-in turns deadly, a family must turn to blackmail, revenge, and betrayal in order to survive.

Thanks to Roadshow

REVIEW:

Nerida:

I’m a fan of the Coen Brothers – love me some Fargo. So when I heard that George Clooney was directing their next original script, naturally I couldn’t wait to see it. Fast track a year and a half later and here we are. Clooney proved to me that it takes much more than a Coen Bros script to make it a Coen Bros film. Suburbicon is one of the few films that will come about where the talent attached to the project is so overwhelming and plentiful but the final product is so mediocre and bordering on bad that it leaves you scratching your head.

The film is very beautiful to start off. The cinematography is very crisp and extremely colorful which makes the setting of the 50s suburbs seemingly pop even more so. The production design and basically anything of a technical aspect is amazingly done here by traditional standards. So why is Suburbicon falling flat? Very simple: Clooney is woefully unqualified to direct a Coen Bros script as are most people. This feels like it was made by someone who watched Fargo and Burn After Reading a dozen times and decided to make this. It feels like it is an imitation and, by the end of the film, that is all it turns out to be. The cast is even really dull despite a fantastic performance from Julianne Moore. Damon can’t decide whether to play it funny or serious and that really plays a big part in the violence of the film. It is comically set up but brutally executed. It doesn’t feel right at all and it makes for a very tough watch.

Overall, Suburbicon is a film that will probably leave your mind as quickly as it came. It is a very forgettable film. It is a frustrating piece of cinema as well because we will always be left with the thoughts of what could have been. With the level of talent and star power, Suburbicon has no business being as dull and ragged as it is especially because in a technical sense, the film is great. But with Clooney’s misguided direction and Matt Damon’s very erratic performance, Suburbicon is a miss of the most disappointing fashion.

Three Summers

Oct 23, 17 Three Summers

We have 5 double in-season passes for THREE SUMMERS

For your chance to win a double pass, answer the question below:

“What’s your favourite thing about the summer?”

Put your answer on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram (with the hashtag #ThreeSummers, tagging @reviewbrisbane so we see it), Facebook, or below!

In Cinemas NOVEMBER 2

SYNOPSIS:

At a summer music festival, the feisty lead singer of an Irish folk band (Rebecca Breeds) meets a folk- music-hating Theremin player (Robert Sheehan) and sparks literally fly.

Characters surrounding this awkward romance include a fiercely Aussie Morris Dancer (Michael Caton), an Indigenous dance troupe, a group of wine-loving empty nesters, a power tripping security guard, a wannabe girl rock band and some musical asylum seekers. In fact, all manner of stories collide under the meddling eye of community radio super star, Queenie (Magda Szubanski), who welcomes the campers back three summers in a row for a folking good time.

Fusing romance, music and Ben Elton’s trademark wit and satirical edge, THREE SUMMERS delivers an engaging folk tale of contemporary Australia with the soundtrack and the belly laughs for the summer to come.
