An Unpredictable Thriller
24 July 2017 | by wendellfountainSee all my reviews

American Romance, though a violent rendition of love experiences, is without question a fresh cinematic depiction of the complicated subject of love with great depth. The raw sexual scenes were necessary to underscore the carnal level, while the dialogue buoyed the more cerebral forms of love relationships. I only recognized one actor in the movie--John Savage--who is an awesome actor, but all of the other actors carried their parts with great professionalism. Each really excelled in their roles. There were a number of unexpected twists and turns in the film. It was a serious and complicated thriller which is not for the faint of heart. I highly recommend it.
