"Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."

American Beauty was a movie that came to me highly recommended, and applauded by critics as a masterpiece. After watching it, it's obvious that nothing less can be said about this film. American Beauty is a masterpiece and a truly impressive film, one to be treasured for ye... read more

''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

"I feel like I've been in a coma for the past twenty years. And I'm just now waking up."

American Beauty is a virtuoso, provocative, multi-faceted, incisive and unconventional drama that takes a comprehensive glimpse at the American dream gone wrong. I had approached this movie with a great deal of hesitation. There were reviews aplenty from people who praised this film as a wonderf... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (739 movies items)

" Some aspects of the film, have aged like fine milk in the sun (Ahem, Kevin Spacey.), it’s still a remarkable film regardless. A man has an existential crisis, and things only unravel from there. Mena Suvari, Annette Benning, and Thora Birch, are great in the film. As is Chris Copper, as a throughly horrible person, who is unfortunately Lester’s neighbour. Bring a lot, of Kleenex. Because, you’ll need them. It’s also a remarkable directing debut, for Sam Mended."

“Beleza americana ou American Beauty é um desses filmes de midlife crisis sobre uma família que se encontra decadente e a beira do colapso, o nosso herói Lester Burnham é o modelo de pai padrão, que tem um emprego padrão e uma família padrão e um bairro padrão, basicamente o americano médio em toda a regra, sua mulher é padrão e sua filha é uma emo gótica ou sei lá que diabos, que lhe odeia pelo fato de não ter recebido atenção na infância, sua mulher odeia ele porque... No se, midlife crisis. Basicamente Lester levava uma vida padrão ao mesmo tempo que em seu íntimo ele odiasse tudo que conquistou porque sabia que era tudo superficial e sem sentido, trabalhando em um emprego que odeia sem sexo e com uma família que por dios.

Basicamente e em poucas palavras” read more
