Oh, Christ, we're still in this phase of postmodernity? Uh, maybe the problem isn't us out here on the receiving end. AMERICAN ANIMALS does a dance of a thousand veils to make you think it is something way more than an entertaining way to pass the time, which is what it is (if you're being generous). Truth? The epistemics of "truth-claim"? Oh, spare me. This is a classic-rock-pumping movie-movie wank.
