''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.

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

Movie Reviews (501-550) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Excellent dialogue and acting spiced up by it's satirical, excellent view on the Western need of a life that mainly is built up by image and facade. It's set-up and use of narrator has been copied numerous time since this film on TV and film. It is impressively put together by a feature film debutant. The Downs: The ending is possibly a tiny bit underwhelming and open-ended to be fully satisfactory. Thora Birch and Mena Suvari has never ever done anything half as good as in this fil"

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.
