Happy October, guys! If you’ve been viewing these newsletters, you are already aware that sometimes I’m fit, and sometimes I’m lazy. I’ve learned in recovery that both are okay. This month, I chose a movie to tell you a bit about. You Netflix fanatics may have already seen it, as it’s been in the Top 10 since it’s release. The Devil All the Time, starring Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, is a psychological thriller based on Donald Ray Pollock’s novel of the same title. Seeing the title, I expected this movie to have a horrific, demonic-type plot. Don’t judge a book by its cover; although this film is dark and twisted, it did not leave me quivering, screaming for my mother. Set in the World War II era, The Devil All the Time examines themes of evil and corrupt religion. I do not recommend this movie to impatient viewers, as the plot takes its time building, but it all comes together at the end. Without giving too much away, the movie begins with a young Arvin who must cope with the death of both of his parents. Arvin grows into a good man with a knack for violence – violence against people who do bad things. Again, this movie is not scary by any means, but it’s sinister storyline will definitely make you a good type of uncomfortable.
