The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time ★★★½

In general terms I can say that I liked the film, it is not perfect and it has points that really bothered me, but overall it is a very solid film.

The highlights of the movie are its performances, each of the actors are really good in their roles, it is really nice to see some of them go out of their comfort zone. Although with a small role Robert Pattinson is excellent, you really end up hating his character.

I also want to emphasize how technically good the film is, the cinematography and the score are quite solid, most of the shots are very well done and the feeling of the 40's, 50's and 60's is recreated quite well.

My problems with the film begin with the narration that is around the whole movie, it really takes you out of some scenes and takes emotional power out of them.

Although in general I can say that I liked the themes that the film dealt with such as violence, religion and the perversion of some parts of rural America, several elements of the story displeased me a little, mainly the treatment of the female characters, which were all written to end in tragedy and therefore do not feel like well-developed characters but rather as plot devices.

Romario liked these reviews
