Movie Reviews

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.
CNN.com - 10/10 by Paul Clinton (CNN.com) American Beauty is deeply disturbing, acerbically funny, brilliantly acted, breathtakingly original and highly sophisticated.
TIME Magazine - 10/10 by Richard Schickel Boldly challenging our sympathies, [Lester] somehow wins them because, to borrow a phrase, he's a man in full.
Triple J - 10/10 by Megan Spencer A truly beautiful, poignant and brilliantly funny film, it doesn't get much better than this.
Cinenganos - 10/10 by Alex Ramirez Les recomiendo leer entre líneas, la realidad mostrada es devastadora, demasiado "bella" y "ordinaria" para algunos...
Cinematter - 10/10 by Madeleine Williams Bening's performance is nothing short of exhilarating.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 10/10 by William Arnold A dynamite comedy-drama that, unless it stiffs big-time at the box office, should be up for multi-Oscar nominations come February.
eFilmCritic.com - 10/10 by Rob Gonsalves An elusive and allusive work of art that won't be pinned down easily.
Hollywood.com - 10/10 by Robert Nuñez It took a British stage director to create the ultimate movie about the American family.
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.
Cincinnati Enquirer - 10/10 by Margaret A. McGurk An uncompromising, sometimes uncomfortable, but utterly exhilarating movie, easily the best yet this year.
Internet Reviews - 10/10 by Steve Rhodes Kevin Spacey's work in the movie is the best film acting that he has ever done.
