Review As I sat down to watch Arlington Road I prepared for a long, drawn-out thriller with a large pay-off at the end. This expectation was immediately shattered by the rapid-fire opening sequence of the film...From the start of the film, especially if you have seen the film's trailers, you know what to expect from each character, and that the Lang family is not what they appear to be. Nevertheless, the film holds your attention as Faraday pursues his investigation of his neighbors...All successful thrillers like Arlington Road are character driven. Tim Robbins is superb in the role of the dark Oliver Lang, while the casting of Joan Cusack as his wife was truly masterful. The ability of Joan Cusack to play the all American mother, yet subversively phony and just a bit too nice, suits her character perfectly. Jeff Bridges does a nice job as Michael Faraday, but the true stars of the film are Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack, everyone else just pales in comparison...a terrific film...

Review "Arlington Road" is an intelligent, insidiously plotted Hitchcockian thriller directed in souped-up, modern expressionistic style. A study of the bland face of evil that culminates in an all-too-plausible attempt at domestic terrorism, this absorbing and surprising political melodrama sometimes tries too hard for its own good, overstressing points when simple understatement would have a more chilling effect. But in an era when most suspensers are hopelessly contrived, derivative and one-dimensional, this one has some real weight in addition to its credible main characters and emotional charge...Bridges and Robbins are in fine form, with the former registering a strong sense of impassioned anxiety along with the lingering pain over the fate of Michael's beloved wife, and the latter calmly unpeeling in stages the layers of Oliver's personality, ultimately revealing his frightening nature.
