Carter Burwell said about the score:
“One of the riskier decisions Simon Curtis and I made with the score was to withhold the main theme until the middle of the film, when A. A. Milne begins to write and his friend Ernest Shepard begins to illustrate “Winnie The Pooh”. We did this to make that moment especially noteworthy, to make it the turning point of the story. Before that point, the music plays
Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns. The perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town's dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices.

The return of Darren Aronofsky should be enough to get any cinephile back to the theater, but the fact that “mother!” has remained so secretive with just under a month to go has only made anticipation higher. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem

“Suburbicon” is written by the Coen Brothers, marking a reunion of sorts between the duo and Clooney after “O Brother, Where Art Thou?,” “Intolerable Cruelty,” and “Hail, Caesar!” The Coen’s originally wrote the movie to direct themselves and eyed Clooney to star, but the actor eventually convinced the pair to let him go behind the camera instead. The cast includes Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Oscar Isaac.
The synopsis from Paramount Pictures reads: “‘Suburbicon’ is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns…

Particulars, as you might have guessed, are non-existent, leaving us with general notices: the project will “intertwine six different story lines,” thus explaining why its scope “seemed too challenging to be covered in one feature film.
“They no doubt would be quick to dismiss this very video series as a frivolous waste of time — an ill-advised attempt to define a filmography that actively defies interpretation,” begins Beyl. Indeed, much of the fascination with the Coens has to do with the seemingly effortless way they are able to layer their films; virtually all of them able to work as a piece of entertainment on first viewing, only to reveal themselves as much deeper on many deserved repeating watches.

“What is the why?”, asks Will Smith's high-flying advertising executive Howard at the start of Collateral Beauty, a kind of modernised spin on the supernatural redemption story of A Christmas Carol. The dialogue is not great, but you do find yourself asking 'why?' a lot during the film that follows. Sadly, it's not something that anyone involved in making the film seems able to answer.
The film opens with this character establishing moment before skipping forward three years in time to find Howard considerably more withdrawn from the world. His six-year-old daughter has tragically passed away and his company is suffering as a result of his days spent building elaborate domino set-ups in his office instead of engaging with clients.

Joel and Ethan Coen, known collectively as the Coen brothers, are a filmmaking duo who have been active making feature films since the 1980’s. Together they share many production-related roles on their films, including writing, directing, editing, and producing. Although they are typically both equal contributors in many of these roles, they often trade off as lead billing. For editor, they typically use the pseudonym “Roderick Jaynes”, and for director Joel was listed on all films up until The Ladykillers even though both of them shared directing responsibilities. On later films, they are both listed as director.
Their first feature film was Blood Simple (1984) which was not a
Hail Caesar review by Luke Ryan Baldock. The Coen brothers Ethan Coen and Joel Coen are two of the finest filmmakers ever. They have produced classics throughout their career cementing them as genuine talent. However, every now and again they like to dabble in farcical screwball comedies that always meet a mixed response. Their misguided remake of the classic Ealing comedy The Ladykillers left many feeling a bit dry, Intolerable Cruelty had its fans and haters (I’m one of the former), and Burn After Reading once again split critics. It’s great to see that The Coen’s never give up on something they obviously feel passionate about, and also that they won’t be bullied into a corner of making the same type of film over and over again.

Its cast includes George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton. Critics have called it a brilliant paean to Hollywood’s golden age. But the Coen brothers’ new period comedy, Hail, Caesar!, has bombed at the Us box office, with the lowest opening haul of any major release in the Oscar-winning duo’s career.
Up against the continuing might of animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3, as well as fellow debutants including romantic drama The Choice and horror-comedy Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the 50s-set tale of a major film star gone missing scored just $11.4m (£7.9m) to open in second place.
