''It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afrai... read more

A rich house in the suburbs, family, a successful career and the American Dream shines in golden, fancy the wrapping. The Sam Mendes but gets the camera, scratches valuable latent happiness coating to reveal the rotten contents of giving off the stench of fulfillment, and the incompleteness of misery, loneliness. The voice of Lester Burnham leads us from beyond the last months of a life enslaved. ... read more

Indeed an American beauty

“'American Beauty' is indeed an American beauty! What can I say? I doubt 'Fight Club' will be as good in my opinion and I can say that this is one of those rare times where the Academy Awards have got it right!

This movie is so amazing, I had to decide the king of movies between 'Memento' and 'American Beauty' and personally I prefer 'Memento' but hardly!

The movie makes sense at the end and it all fits together! The protagonist Lester (Kevin Spacey) is married to Carolyn (Annette Bening) and they have a daughter Jane (Thora Birch). Lester falls for Jane's friend Angela (Mena Suvari) and Jane falls for Ricky (Wes Bentley) while Carolyn falls for another man and cheats on her husband. Ricky at first films Jane and then she asks him to kill her father.

Attica! Attica! posted a review 1 year, 6 months ago

“An acerbic, darkly comic critique of how social conventions can lead people into false, sterile and emotionally stunted lives, "American Beauty" is a real American original. Multilayered, bracingly resourceful and tweaked to push its many brash ideas to the edge and beyond, this independent-minded feature represents a stunning card of introduction for two cinematic freshmen, screenwriter Alan Ball and director Sam Mendes.” read more

"15.11 Loistava tarina mikä onnistuu olemaan samaa aikaa viihdyttävä, hauska, surullinen ja onnistuu laittaa vielä katsojan miettimäänkin mistä se oma elämäilo koostuukaan ja mikä elämässä on tärkeää. Pääosassa hääräävä Kevin Spacey onnistuu heti alusti asti varastamaan koko show:n itselleen, vaikka toki upeita suorituksia hänen tukenakin nähdään. Elokuva kertoo monia erilaisia kasvutarinoita samaan aikaan, mikä tekee lähes varmasi, että jokainen onnistuu ainakin jo"

"I wanted to watch American Beauty again because I thought if somebody would ask me which genre it is I couldn't really give him a distinct and satisfying answer. The first term which came into my mind was "Drama"; depression, drugs, death, definetly dramatic. But that's not the core, that's not what it is. Then I thought about a "Satire". But that's not the one and only truth either. Not even the term "mixture of both" will give me the feeling that I hit the right point. There's so much more be"
