There have always been richly rewarding films that critique the wealthy and nuclear family politics, but the past decade has seen this specific type of film explode in popularity and acclaim. From the Oscar-winning Parasite to the Palme d’Or-winning Triangle of Sadness, some of the most critically revered movies of recent years have skewered the wealthy elite. This has crossed over into the mainstream as well, with popular flicks like The Menu and Bodies Bodies Bodies joining the pedigree of great satires against the rich. One of the latest additions to this glorious trend is the new comedic thriller from France, The Origin of Evil, and we have an exclusive clip you can watch below. In it, you see the economic and class tensions within a family that’s literally split apart.
The Origin of Evil is a wicked comedic thriller about the supposedly long-lost daughter of a wealthy, aging patriarch.
