Trivia

Bart Layton (writer/director) spoke at the Sydney premiere about his ambition to incorporate a heist scene from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven (2001) in this film. Unfortunately the rights were refused at the time of production. Steven Soderbergh would later regret this decision after watching a screening of American Animals. See more »

Wow!
7 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

Bad title, that would lead most people to assume this movie is about violence and/or debauchery but there's very little of either. I might have been in the right mood but I was mesmerized and give it a 10 score. Based on a true story and yet a fictional retelling. You know basically what's going to happen but never exactly how events will transpire. Not one false emotion or action in this 2-hour film that treats moviegoers like adults (take THAT superheroes and CGI!). What a relief that a story doesn't take place on either coast, nor is it elitist. And although it's in the genre of heist capers this is a totally original setup. No banks, casinos, jewelry, or even cash. The perpetrators aren't sympathetic or unsympathetic, but believable. Also shows, for real, the impact on family and friends when bored young men cook up something exciting. Hitchcock would love American Animals!
