Suburbicon (2017)

As a 1950s suburban community self-destructs, a home invasion has sinister consequences for one seemingly normal family.

In the bosom of Suburbicon, a family-centred, all-white utopia of manicured lawns and friendly locals, a simmering tension is brewing, as the first African-American family moves in the idyllic community, in the hot summer of 1959. However, as the patriarch Gardner Lodge and his family start catching a few disturbing glimpses of the once welcoming neighbourhood's dark underbelly, acts of unprecedented violence paired with a gruesome death will inevitably blemish Suburbicon's picture-perfect facade.

AV Club: Suburbicon’s awkward medley proves that George Clooney is no Coen brother (Grade: C)

Rotten Tomatoes: 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. (28% TOMATOMETER)

I watched this a couple weeks ago and thought it was atrocious.
