I never tire of watching Spacey getting high and jamming to American Woman! I love this flick and have since it came out. Lots of crack me up one liners that I felt were fairly subtle. I suppose I relate to many thoughts/emotions portrayed by all. Annette Bening was stellar in her role as well.

This movie comes to mind everytime I see a white plastic bag floating aimlessly and lonesomely in the wind.

Absolutely brilliant movie.

I liked this movie more in 1999 than I do now. Think it was a little overrated during it's time.

I think the bag is the greatest actor of all time.

This was the film that put Kevin Spacey on my radar. 9/10, brilliance all around.

This movie has many interpretations, it's up for you to decided what the moral is.

this is the most amazing film I have ever had the privilege to watch, interpreting it is probably what will make it either an ok film or an amazing one to you. 9.8/10

you can count on sam mendes to display beautiful symbolism which he does in one of my favourite films, road to perdition. There are so many that i rather not go into. I just love how honest the characters , how they are all very strange. how beautiful thora birch is. Thats a hell of a soundtrack too. 4/5

This movie had so many emotions in it. makes you really think, I think this film is alot darker than people portray it.

I was expecting something along the lines of American Pie, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It's a movie that delves into the complexities of human relationships and subtext, as well as bittersweet revelations that sometimes dreams should remain exactly that - dreams. If you're looking for something that challenges your perspective then this is the film for you, but for me it had the unfortunate effect of leaving me feeling empty and depressed. Optimism doesn't even feature in it, so if you prefer Disney happy endings then this is one film to avoid.

This movie is kind of slow. 90% of the movie is just about this guy who's going through a mid-life crises, and starts acting crazy, and fighting with his wife. Nothing really happens until the very end. I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

Holy shit! I didn't expect the movie to be this good. So funny and sad at the same time.

Such an incredible film. I've lost track of how many times I've seen it, and it hasn't lost any of its power over time. Brilliant writing, fascinating characters, and brilliant acting all around. If you haven't seen this, watch it. Now. One of the best movies of all time.

I myself loved this movie, while yes it is a very slow-paced movie but when it comes down to it the storyline had me intrigued enough to keep watching it and the acting was just well done 5/5

Posted by CrazyGoat96 1 year, 2 months ago

I don't think of this as a film... it's more a work of art, modern art to be precise. A perfect representation of beauty (or in this case American Beauty... sorry had to.) I believe there's beauty in all of us and a lot of us can lose sight of that beauty, can lose sight of the things that make us who we are. We're all the same deep down, we all want to be loved, we all want to be happy, so the sooner we get past these... superficial differences we find in each other, the sooner we can be at one with not only oursleves, but be at one with everyone and everything that just so happens to exist on this strange, wonderful, insanely beautiful little planet of ours. Peace out.

In my opinion, one of the best films of all times. Amazing script, amazing story, amazing characters, amazing performances. One of the few films that absolutely lived up to all the hype and awards it garnered when it came out.

a very interesting film and a good watch 9/10
