Director: George Clooney Starring: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, Noah Jupe Runtime: 105 minutes

Amongst the white picket fences and pristinely mowed lawns of 1950’s American suburbia, director George Clooney sets the scene for his new comedy noir, Suburbicon. Originally penned (and subsequently shelved) by the Coen Brothers in 1986, the movie found new life in the hands of Clooney and long-time writing partner Grant Heslov. After years on the shelf, the film has finally reached our screens with the same wicked sense of humour we have come to expect from the Coen Brothers throughout the years. Just like the titular town itself, there are a few cracks in the foundation of Suburbicon but not nearly enough to sink what is a watchable, surreal and funny film.

Bourne is back. With Matt Damon returning to the franchise after 2012’s sub-par reboot The Bourne Legacy, this latest installment sticks to the tried and true formula of the genre it helped redefine over a decade ago. That’s not to say Jason Bourne is a disappointment. The film manages to keeps an exciting and relentless pace throughout, it just never really reaches new heights.
