The American


While in retrospect I actually liked a fair amount of this movie, its glacial pace and lack of… well, stuff happening, prohibits me from giving it a general recommendation.

See instead: Michael Clayton

  1. YES.

    An American film with European sensibilities.
    Its pace works to advantage of the whole thing.
    Stuff does happen; its just more subtle than typical spy thriller. Can see why it doesn’t have wide mass appeal. But it’s a thinking persons work of art – thoroughly enjoyable.

    Definite classic and great in balance with say ‘RED’ which covers similar territory in entirely different ways.

    Recommend both.
