The hollow shell of American Life
12 February 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Call it sentiments of generation X before generation X. This movie was fantastic. It asks the sincere question: do you see yourself as successful, or do others see it in you? And what would happen if you and society found your success in different places? The last scene captures the outcome visually with great symbolism.
