Movie Reviews

Cinenganos - 10/10 by Alex Ramirez Les recomiendo leer entre líneas, la realidad mostrada es devastadora, demasiado "bella" y "ordinaria" para algunos...
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert Spacey, an actor who embodies intelligence in his eyes and voice, is the right choice for Lester Burnham.
Norman Transcript - 10/10 by Jim Chastain It is the screenplay, that penetrating, character-driven screenplay, that surely makes American Beauty one of the best (if not the best) films this year.
Compuserve - 10/10 by Harvey S. Karten American Beauty mesmerizes because every moment, however caricatured, hits a nerve in each of us.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Lorien Haynes British theatre director Sam Mendes made an astonishing film debut with this sublime black comedy about midlife crises.
Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY) - 10/10 by Judith Egerton Like Network in the 1970s and Ordinary People in the '80s, American Beauty is a scathing reflection of contemporary American life.
Newsweek - 10/10 by David Ansen American Beauty is a very funny film that packs an unexpected emotional wallop.
Rolling Stone - 10/10 by Peter Travers The kind of artful defiance that Hollywood is usually too timid to deliver: a jolting comedy that makes you laugh till it hurts.
Internet Reviews - 10/10 by Steve Rhodes Kevin Spacey's work in the movie is the best film acting that he has ever done.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Edward Guthmann A great, tremendously entertaining experience. I only wish there were more films this satisfying. - 10/10 by Widgett Walls Exhibits a stable, consistent tone and style, using brilliant direction, incredible acting and a smart screenplay that balances the comedy with the morbidity.
Cincinnati Enquirer - 10/10 by Margaret A. McGurk An uncompromising, sometimes uncomfortable, but utterly exhilarating movie, easily the best yet this year.
