This sprawling tale stars Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, and Bill Skarsgård. It’s packed with murders, corrupt characters and all manner of dark dealings. The narrative follows 2 generations as they deal with various unfortunate outcomes. The members of this impressive ensemble assume roles as relatives and sinister supporting characters, but it’s Holland and Pattinson who are the most impressive (with convincing Southern accents). The seemingly unrelated stories have interconnected characters…reminiscent of the Coens at their most sinister…without the depth of enthralling storytelling or humor. It moves slowly (2:18 running time) and even with all the unfortunate events, never achieves any powerful emotional effect. Still, it remains compelling for the performances.

 

3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)
