David Carradine's work in American Reel is reminiscent of Robert Duvall's powerful Academy Award winning performance in Tender Mercies - in short - see this movie.
3 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This film was highly recommended by a friend who is also a big David Carradine fan. His work as an actor is simple and true and he never delivers a false moment. His exceptional and eclectic work in Boxcar Bertha, Deathrace 2000, The Serpent's Egg, Mean Streets - and one of the best television shows - Kung Fu, proves that he is a valued treasure. With Quentin Tarantino's emergence as Hollywood's most sought after film director, David Carradine is the only person that he considered to play the lead in his latest epic Kill Bill. David Carradine's work in American Reel is reminiscent of Robert Duvall's powerful Academy Award winning performance in Tender Mercies. In short
