A series of horrifying murders, the victims, always couples, staged in bizarre collage dioramas with cardboard cutouts and scribbled, childlike messages about the corrupting power of love. The killer's on the loose, and the FBI is looking for a truck driver. Emery Reed is a long haul trucker disillusioned with the American Dream after an accident left his wife paralyzed and took the life of their son. Newlyweds Jeff and Krissy are having the time of their lives until their car breaks down on a rural road in the middle of nowhere. When the love birds collide with the forlorn truck driver, a wild ride leaves everyone questioning the true value of love and American Romance.
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.
