What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Brian Viner Noir 'Suburbicon' is stylish, funny and entertaining.
Paul Boekkooi Wit utopia? Die lewe is hél in die suburbs.
Herman Eloff The film starts out all sunshine and roses before sliding into a pit of hell. It will leave you uncomfortable and with a lot of questions – which is a good thing.
Jim Judy Overall, I was disappointed by the film, not only due to its missed opportunities, but also by the inclusion of a separate storyline -- with a noticeably different tone -- that serves as nothing more than an obvious message of being blinded by hate and not realizing what true dangers might be lurking next door in suburbia.
Tomatometer A disappointing misfire for director George Clooney, Suburbicon attempts to juggle social satire, racial commentary, and murder mystery -- and ends up making a mess of all three.
Jeffrey M. Anderson Depressing, violent dark comedy is a big misfire.
