This is more of a warning than a review! LOL.

You know, the trailers for Suburbicon are seriously misleading. With all the scenes portrayed in the sequence they’re shown, it would almost seem to look like some kind of light comedy, but IT IS NOTHING like that.

All in all, this film was a painfully looooong 1 hour and 45 minute film. It felt like three hours.
