  1. Steve G.'s rating of the film Lost in America

    She should have taken Wesley Snipes' advice in Passenger 57.

  2. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Lost in America

    "I've seen the future! It's a bald man from New York!" What's the Easy Rider generation to do at the height of Reagan's America? Albert Brooks's road trip (with several nods to Dennis Hopper's) takes an energetically witty look at mid-life crises, and finds a pleasing middle ground, where adult needs are recognized but with the jadedness dispelled. At the very least, it's more honest than "We blew it, man."

  5. DaisyJ's rating of the film Lost in America

    This movie didn't age well. And if I were the guy, I would've dumped her instantly when she gambled all the money. Ooops!

  7. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Lost in America

    It's definitely not a coincidence that Stanley Kubrick was a huge Albert Brooks fan. His films always hide the complexities under a veil of neurotic behavior but the genius subtleties of the filmmaking is there. Lost in America is no exception.

    "have you seen Easy Rider?" new favourite film

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Lost in America

    The yuppie drop-out film stills holds plenty of laughs and entertainment almost thirty years on. Brooks and Hagerty have a very good chemistry as the couple who cash out to live on the road until one's gambling problem comes to the surface. Some great vignettes especially Brooks pitch to gambling boss Gary Marshall.

  10. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Lost in America

    Kind of perfect, and Julie Hagerty forever, though Dave Kehr made me expect a Straub movie with jokes, which it isn't, really.

  11. Slowart's rating of the film Lost in America

    brooks' talkative hysterical alter ego is scary as hell (both in modern romance & lost in america) / eric saarinen's camera movements overwhelm in unexpected ways like the overlong smooth tracking shot at the dam / "i've seen the future. it's a bald-headed man from new york" / in one word genius / + the weirdest thing about brooks' comedies is the abrupt ending. so what?

  12. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Lost in America

    A sparkling and exceedingly well-shot comedy from writer-director-star Albert Brooks, who has great chemistry with the very underrated and always entertaining Julie Hagerty. A number of classic witty comedy moments, though unfortunately it looses some steam in the final act, so it falls just short of being a true comedy classic. Still, one of Brooks' very best.

  13. willmckinley's rating of the film Lost in America

    Albert Brooks's LOST IN AMERICA (1985) is, sadly, not as funny as I remember. L.A. yuppies David (Brooks) and wife Linda (Julie Haggerty) sell their house, buy an RV and "drop out of society." On their first stop (in Vegas), Linda gambles away their nest egg. Hilarity ensues. You know you're in trouble when the funniest thing in the movie is "Happy Days" hack Garry Marshall. Needed a punch-up. (9/16/11 @ BAM, Bklyn)

  14. Greg S.'s rating of the film Lost in America

    Brooks lampoons self important middle class ideas about 'finding yourself' and exposes cliches about the open road. What's impressive is at the times the realities are harsh but never cynical. What's also impressive is as much as Brooks relies on spoken word word he brings a great amount of cinematic savvy particular withe the very first shot and whenever it comes to highlighting award moments. A must see.

  15. Clarice the Specter's rating of the film Lost in America

    The only Marxist comedy road movie? (Not entirely joking at all!)

  18. Dzimas's rating of the film Lost in America

    Great send-up of the American way as only Albert Brooks could do.
