Suburbicon has gotten mixed reviews, but for any film lover who has seen a bunch of films and not your average Joe Schmoe, then I honestly believe you will find entertainment watching this flick. This darkly comedic thriller pits Matt Damon as the antagonist and I feel like that going against the status quo for Matt Damon films likely garnered some of the mixed reviews. Some of you, like me will even be completely fascinated by this genius little film that should be getting much wider appraise.

Without giving everything away I must admit that I love the way irony is used in this film which touches on a nation’s past and some undertones that are debated in today’s society as well. George Clooney did a great job directing and also receives a writing credit along with the infamous Coen brothers and Grant Heslov. In my eyes Suburbicon is a great addition into the filmology of the Coen Brother’s work with shades of “O Brother Where Art Thou” despite an obviously different genre, time period etc. and I’m sure most wouldn’t draw that comparison but its the quirkiness at times that even seems a bit Wes Anderson-esque. (GBH) Perhaps its the unique charm the film puts forth on the viewer as you are enthralled to see what might transpire next. Gripping to say the least.

The film stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Oscar Isaac.

Suburbicon looks great on Blu-ray, and did not receive an Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray release, but never the less it still shines well in 1080p goodness.

Suburbicon comes with a 5.1 DTS HD Master audio track that is put to the test with the elements of the movie. The score, the dialogue, the loud rackets that the residents are causing, and all the other action that goes along with this flick. Front heavy, but immersive at times albeit subtle via utilization of rears well enough.
