Fuck yeah, this movie kicks ass. I'd say it's the best movie in the last two years.

this was one of the most beautiful and well crafted movies i have ever seen, although i am not sure i could have dealt with it while fucked up...it might have messed with my head a little too much. anyway, i think that it has so effect, there isnt much reason to be on drugs while watching it...but, to each his own.

Damn good flick. Grabs you at the beginning and holds your attention throughout the film. Any one remember how much cash that herb cost? It was something astronomical :frown:.

As soon as I saw American Beauty it was instantly my favorite movie of all time, one of the most artistic films I've seen, if not the most. I've never seen a director take so much time incorporating so much symbolism, I thought the red flowers in the background of every scene with the American Pie girl in was simply brilliant. I'm kinda bias though cause I've loved Keven Spacey ever since Usual Suspects.

yea, this is defintely one movie that doesnt need to be watched while fucked up, altho thats just how it happened when i watched it.

also, that little herb that the kid sold to the guy, (looked about a 30 or 40 bag), cost him $2,000. that musta been some good fuckin herb ..

and he fronted it to him to! lucky bastard

anyways, there is so much to this movie that i fuckin love

peace

Did anyone notice that the guy who lived the way he wanted too ended up dead not even a year later???

If your idea of kicking ass is living in a loveless marriage with a daughter who hates you and just giving up on all of it for selfish purposes, well then I guess you deserve your life (and death)

"G13, genetically engineeredby the govt, $2000 for what looked like a couple grams)". And that movie does kick ass, a real statement.

SPOILER

Freshmaker makes a point. We salute Spacey's character for deciding that he wants to live life on his terms. However, he did have responsibilities. He assumed tht just because he was ready to live life on his own terms that his family would share this enlightened view. Let's take a look at what he did. He quit his job and blackmailed his boss. Then, he decides that he deserves a classic sports car when he isn't making any signifigant income anymore. What about if his daughter wants to go to college? Wouldn't that have been more responsible and less selfish to put the money that he illegally blackmailed off his boss?

What noble and great acts did this guy really make? The movie is shown through his perspective so it really doesn't deal with these issues because the dude thought he was doing no wrong. But if you look at the cold facts of his actions, he doesn't seem so heroic.

american beauty is one of my favorite movies ever. i liked it even better the second time i saw it. it really broke barriers by portraying the dysfunctional side of the "american dream" life. it also makes you think of the beauty in the world, and how fleeting life can be.

yeah, freshmaker and doobie bring up a good point.
I guess he could be considered a hero to some because Spacey lived out the fantasy that to a certain extent we all carry. who wouldnt want to let loose, blackmail their boss, tell people (such as corrupt bosses and loveless spouses) to fuck off, and sit around smoking the best herb you can get while driving a nice new sportscar? it was a great feeling to watch him throw the asparagus at the wall and not take any shit from them.
but, he certainly didnt make some great choices. he did have responsibilities, like doob said. just because you have responsibilty doesnt mean you cant live life.
