Film Cinema


Director: George Clooney. Starring: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac. USA 2017. 104 mins.

Once again George Clooney steps behind the camera, this time directing a screenplay co-written with the Cohen brothers. Unsurprisingly, this twisted tale of dark doings and social inequality beneath a superficially squeaky-clean 1950s American town has all the hallmarks of both the writers’ and director’s sharpest comedy-dramas. Uptight salaryman Gardner Lodge (Damon) is reeling from a break-in by thieves who kill his wheelchair-bound wife (Moore), leaving his son Nicky (Jupe) motherless. But, as Alexandre Desplat’s score shifts from laidback jazz to music of frenzied agitation, rats start being smelt, not least by a wonderfully snippy insurance agent (Isaac) and by poor Nicky. A sub-plot involving Lodge’s new black neighbours further upsets the apple-cart as the community attempts to drive them out.
