The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time ★½

I’d rather have seen the dizzier, weirder movie that Robert Pattinson thought he was in, the one where his high drawl, erratic cadence, and serpentine postures made sense because the movie wasn’t taking itself and its heavy-handed religious imagery so damn seriously. 

It’s a convoluted soap-opera gothic about homocidal/rapey Christian fundamentalists, and I’m not sure what Campos thought it was saying exactly. But Keogh again turns in a performance that’s conflicted and sultry and bruised around the edges. And Holland proves himself a convincing lead outside the spidey suit; presumably that’s what this was about for him.
