The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time ★★½

At about 90 minutes into the movie all I could think was "how is there 45 minutes left?" I don't think this film is a flat out bad movie. It raises some interesting questions regarding the corruption of religion. But instead of exploring those themes thoroughly it decides to go into basic southern thriller.
The cast makes this mediocre Netflix movie particularly memorable. Tom Holland is trying to prove to the audience he's more than a child superhero. Sebastion Stan is present. But Robert Pattinson hits a homerun with his role as the corrupt preacher. He has honestly the most ridiculous southern accent and it is brilliant. Easily the best performance of this stacked ensemble.
The cinematography looks fine. The story isn't anything special to write home about. Just everything about "The Devil All The Time" is fine. I'll probably forget about it in a few weeks save for Pattinson.
