Anmeldelser fra kritikere

I know how attached I remain to American Beauty, bringing actorly and audiovisual verve even to dubious conceits as luscious and idiosyncratic at some moments as it is sepulchural or hackneyed at others. So why was I preparing for how, whether, and why students would either love it uncritically or hate me for assigning it?

American Beauty is a brilliant satirical diagnosis of what’s most screwed up about life in this country, especially when it comes to sexual frustration and kiddie porn. Or American Beauty is a hypocritical piece of kiddie porn, brilliantly exploiting an audience’s sexual frustration and turning it into coin. Take your pick. Paradoxical as it sounds, both of these statements may be true.
