List: Top 3 Movies About Suburbia

List: Top 3 Movies About Suburbia

This week on Episode 245 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by George Clooney’s Suburbicon, we discussed our Top 3 movies about suburbia. Films about suburban American have been around for a long time, some of them making potent commentary on the illusion of what it means to live in that environment. Other films have simply utilized that setting to create visceral movie-going experiences. Regardless of approach, there are some great films that fall under this umbrella, and we had a lot of fun diving into that this week. On that note, what movies would make your list?
