    The Devil All the Time

    ★½

    A violent movie that depicts religion as nothing, but pure evil. It's not subtle to its detriment because religion has always been most evil, especially in this country, for being insidious, not so outright evil. Most of the characters are either just evil or easily manipulatable, otherwise we don't get to know anything else about them so they were all pretty boring to me.

Elements that really connected with me are parts about the soul-crushing nature of living in a society that encourages small-talk and politeness and how…

    I enjoyed how this movie played with some broad themes in a very specific, strange manner. The out-there plot is portrayed in such a matter-of-fact way that really appeals to me. I also love how much of a character the community of Bacurau was. However, I do wish some of the habitants of Bacura got more screen time. They were almost all entirely more interesting than the group of bad…
