The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time ★★★

This film had moments of brilliant tension, mainly helped by the editing. It’s way of not showing the focus makes the scene very uneasy.

I could see the effort into this film, but the one lacking and almost annoying part was the voiceover. It was unneeded. Sometimes silence in a film is good, but, when there is a heartfelt scene, or a character is contemplating, instead of silence or a music track, we get this dull, gravelly voice describing what is happening on screen. I see what they were going for (use the narrator as the 3rd person, linking the movie to the book, but I believe they could have not had it and would have been a very good film.

I do really like the direction other wise by Campos, will have to check out his other films.
