Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

American Beauty (1999)

Directed by Sam Mendes

Starring Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening, Thora Birch, Wes Bentley


Touching, with a lot of important messages. Good writing.

Acting and casting is perfect all-around. Spacey and Bentley are fantastic, Bening is annoyingly perfect. Spacey’s subtley, sarcasm, and timing are impeccable. He’s perhaps the funniest actor of the 90’s. His character reminds me of Broderick in Election. Heather Sher? Neat seeing a friend in a real movie for the first time.

Didn’t think the duplicate footage at the beginning was entirely necessary.
