The devil all the time

Wikipedia

A priori it was hard to think that something could go wrong with that cocktail, but much stranger things have been seen. Today has taken place its premiere on the platform and I can not say it is a bad movie, but we are facing a festival of cruelty and sordidness somewhat uneven in which the best of the show end up being its actors.

‘The Devil at All Hours’ is a collection of interlocking stories set in deep America in the mid-twentieth century. Throughout its more than two hours of footage, different stories called to converge in one way or another are collected, covering several decades of history. Technically speaking, it is a film with the makings of a great cinema, as it provides the necessary setting for the viewer to plunge into a kind of world apart in which criminal or despicable attitudes are almost accepted. «It is what it is», as they would say nowadays, but without the need for anyone to verbalize it in order to make it crystal clear to the viewer.

Harry melling

«While the film may be a wee bit strong, it is very watchable (…) What saves this film from becoming torture porn is the amount of psychological detail involved (…) The greatest virtue of ‘Devil’ is in its actors (…) Score: ★★½ (out of 4)»

«Only Riley Keough and Eliza Scanlen have stood out (…) in this film whose gruesomeness is shocking, but also too easy to forget once the paroxysm is over. (…) Score: ★★★★ (out of 5)»

«A cruel film whose insane and religious violence ends up playing against it: there is so much blood and death that there comes a moment when it stops mattering too much who lives or who dies.»

«It has an exquisite realization and, above all, a sensational cast. (…) There is, moreover, a very interesting aspect to the film, which does not need to await any future review to be fully appreciated.»
