American Beauty (1999)
Shocking experience. Cast is perfect. Kevin Spacey is great. Deep gaze, boredom and the need for life at the same time formulated in his looks, but at the same time a satirical almost scorching face to this life. Annette Benning here gives a solid performance - of its best I would say - like a hysterical, suburban, materialist wife. Mena Suvari in the role of adolescent attention whore, a permanent victim of her beauty and admiration by everyone - a classic portrayal of American dream for teen girls. Wes Bentley gives a performance of his lifetime, in the role that reminds someone like psycho, weirdo, pedophile, satanist, cult member, stalker, possible serial killer.Chris Cooper is great in the role of homophobic veteran, repressed homosexual who is driven to crime.The most shocking performance is Alisson's Janney heartbreaking silence in an almost catatonic state.Wonderful depiction of middle class, middle-age, suburban American dream drama. Clearly influenced by European cinema.Well done!
