The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time ★★★½

Wow.

I get why people think it's fantastic. I get why people think it's shit. I'm somewhere in the middle. Even though I'm a fan of non-linear storytelling, the film was still all over the place and the method didn't really serve a purpose to me. Plus, it definitely suffers from "why the fuck did they do that" syndrome and I was scratching my head a fair amount of times. That being said, it does wrap up really nicely at the end, and there's not a single performance in here that isn't elite. I really did enjoy myself, and it's one of my favorites of the year, but also saw the potential for a far better film, which leaves me a bit unsatisfied.
