Anything with 'American' in the title can't go wrong...
I understand the artistry which Is trying be unraveled by Arnold but Its a tediously slow and repetitive emo/rap loving young adults attempting to find their places In life - They 'sell magazines' as they try manipulate good people in society for their own self indulgent ways.
However at 2hrs 43 minutes of attempting to follow this movie it fails to deliver. The content is constantly repeating itself - with one scene It starts to become intriguing, however Arnold seems to stop this right after and then the repetitive content becomes apparent.
The direction is well done, however the film has you losing faith after 1:40 minutes and asking where has this film gone.
Its surprising to see Shia labeouf in this film however he is still a class act. I do wonder about his film choices, he doesn't seem to care what roles he gets as his Hollywood path seems to be stagnating.
I can't understand how this has received such high praise - I believe it is only the youngsters of the generation who have some connection with young adults of the film.
People who are giving 10 out of 10 or 'five out of five' on an IMDb site which is clearly 10 star rating don't understand the critic of films or genres, unfortunately they are a stereotype of sorts.
Get ready for a slow moving repetitive depiction of slow content, a film losing its value after time.
4 out of 10 / The 4 is just for the artistry.
