aye yo preacha! got toime for a sinnah?
It is one of those films that after you saw it for the first viewing, you just couldn't bother to rewatch or think about it for the next days.
The Devill All the Time is a rural gothic tale that reminded me of There Will Be Blood that I expected so much when I first saw the trailer because it grappled themes and subplots that extremely interest me -- religion and false preaching. It is an okay film. The film is most enjoyable in terms of acting but for the non-linear structure, narration, and pacing, they are either bland, ineffective, or irking. The narration really put me on perplexed mode idk what the hell that was. However, in spite of the seemingly misguided non-linear storytelling, the four storylines were intriguing to supervene.
Holland's portrayal of Arvin truly shocked me (im sorry i underestimated him lol). Also, I'm glad that Da 5 Bloods, I'm Thinking of Ending Things, and The Devil All the Time are standing for decent Netflix Originals films in 2020. Hope Netflix launch more of these.
