BRIGHTBURN (2019)

dir. David Yarovesky. Some beautifully framed moments, but let down by some hammy acting by the adults. Great seeing Matt Jones (Badger in Breaking Bad) in a big movie. I would have loved to see this concept taken super seriously, this was enjoyable but felt like an extended episode of The X-Files. I would have liked to see more about Brandon’s state of mind, and less OTT gore. Great use of the the Billie Eilish song.
