User Reviews

 
An outstanding independent noir-thriller, dark in theme but light in tone!
22 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I very rarely post reviews of even the most outstanding (or, say, outrageously bad) films on IMDb, and one major reason is that (in general, i.e. usually) the films I see have either been reviewed hundreds of times or seem to have been fairly reviewed by the relatively few who've contributed their thoughts. This, however, is an exceptional case! The majority of this film's other reviews so far posted here are either negative or lukewarm, which is a tragedy for the prospective viewer, at least if she takes that to be a reason for passing this clever, immensely enjoyable gem over! I find it kind of shocking that there aren't more (at this time, there is only one other) extremely positive reviews of this film here. The only thing I can come up with to explain that fact is this: Good Neighbors is pitched at a fairly high level; the humor is subtle and often perverse, depending upon multiple layers of irony and extensive character development; the drama/suspense does NOT depend upon much mystery qua whodunit (although the movie "plays by the rules" in that it gamely keeps the viewer open-minded about the killer's identity, to this viewer the killer's identity was rather overtly apparent from the opening scenes...I second guessed myself at times, but...) but rather on the tension between what the viewer knows and what the characters don't, all of which means that less astute viewers might not notice most of what's going on in this film (several people here have called the movie 'flat', which honestly makes me inclined to call them 'dull'). I don't want to say anything about the actual plot here, but for those of you who enjoy intelligent films (e.g. Coen Brothers films, as another reviewer aptly noted) even though the proper appreciation thereof will engage more of one's mind than more escapist fare, this is pure indie treasure. For a third world country, Canada sure produces more than her share of cultural jewels...(jokes)!
