The Devil All the Time (Antonio Campos – 2020) B+

It’s an awful brutal movie. It’s a rough, depressing tale set in a Cormac McCarthy type American south in the backwoods of West Virginia. Sold yet? It’s set in a place and time after the second war where religion and violence saturate every minute of it. We get excellent performances by Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgard and Robert Pattinson at his most vile and creepy. It’s not a fun time this one yet I was captivated by the story and the twists and turns where a chance encounter of two people without them knowing sets in motion events that will occur 20 years later.
