George Clooney United States, 2017

mootz15's rating of the film Suburbicon

occasionally funny in a classic Cohenesque way, but with none of the subtlety and upturned expectations of a vintage Cohens script (which, strictly speaking, this is not). Beyond the slapstick it is nothing but a lazy, moralistic 'critique' of post-war American triumphalism with a tired, hagiographical nod to the civil rights movement.
