**To redefine the life and to discover the love.**
From the British director of ‘Fish Tank’ fame, this is another a young struggling girl’s story. Being brought up in a low income and abusive family, and because of that trying to redefine the life. Not about heading the wrong way like drugs and other related stuffs. So this is the story of an older teen girl named Star who flees the home to find her new life and love. It all begins when she meets a youngster in a supermarket and since then she followed him everywhere. Actually the film focused to tell a gang of youth who are door to door magazine subscription dealers. They travel all over the country and have all kinds of enjoyment.
In order to stay in the group, Star has to prove her worth. She reserves her spot, but working on her own way. I always feared the narration might go to take a nasty twist. There came a couple scenes near to that, but compromised not to change the mood of the storytelling. Because it seems the writer was interested to reveal a girl try to achieve two goals. After coming to know one of it was staged, how she contemplates the other one crafted carefully. Not to forget, her fate, the future depends on it, since she’s not well qualified to go out in the world to do whatever she wants.
So I think it was a decent film with a decent message. If you know the director, you would know what her films talk about. Unlike ‘Fish Tank’, this is about an American girl. The influence of lifestyle, culture, almost everything related to youngsters covered. The lead actress was good. It was not Shia Labeouf’s film, but in a supporting role, he did his best. There are a few others I knew, but they did not get big part. The only issue with it was the length. If you are okay with it, especially for a slow drama, then the film is enjoyable. ‘American Honey’ is like ‘American Money’, one of the ways people try to make their ‘American Dream’ come to true. This film is exclusively for drama genre fans.
Pointless and terrible film that leads to nowhere.
The Director of Fish Tank, was not able to capture lighting in a bottle twice.
Most of the movie is spent in a van listening to rap music, the other large part is the boring romance story with a protagonist who seemed better to be a prostitute, then a door to door salesperson.
Other characters are introduced but no depth is added to these characters, even though we spend a lot of time in a van with them.
The movie doesnt even pay off with the Conclusion it seemingly leads too, it just ends.
Gritty, Compelling and Harsh
If you are a fan of Larry Clarks Kids then this is the film for you. It portrays a harsh reality that most people would rather not see. It’s got that train wreck quality that won’t let you turn away and at the same time has you horrified.
Sasha Lane as the protagonist Star gave a great performance. Her anger and sadness come to the surface even when she’s silent. I’ve always liked Shia LaBeouf but I’ve usually felt like the films he’s done don’t interest me so I don’t get to see his performances that much.
I realize that the film is long, but I think it’s part of what makes this film special. It takes time to develop and meanders a bit in the process but again it’s part of what makes the film seem so genuine. Though the premise of the story is a bit ridiculous in itself it’s really just a vehicle to let us in on the behavior of these young people. What makes them tick. What kind of music they like. How they relate to each other.
Clearly this film isn’t for everyone. You should have an idea what it is about before you partake in the investment of watching it. But if you are like me and enjoy the sociological aspect of feeling like you are eavesdropping on the life of these young people then it’s a great film.
I’m not familiar with this director but now I’d like to see her other films. Hopefully her hand is on the pulse of a lot of different subsets of culture.
Anything with ‘American’ in the title can’t go wrong…
I understand the artistry which Is trying be unraveled by Arnold but Its a tediously slow and repetitive emo/rap loving young adults attempting to find their places In life – They ‘sell magazines’ as they try manipulate good people in society for their own self indulgent ways.
However at 2hrs 43 minutes of attempting to follow this movie it fails to deliver. The content is constantly repeating itself – with one scene It starts to become intriguing, however Arnold seems to stop this right after and then the repetitive content becomes apparent.
The direction is well done, however the film has you losing faith after 1:40 minutes and asking where has this film gone.
Its surprising to see Shia labeouf in this film however he is still a class act. I do wonder about his film choices, he doesn’t seem to care what roles he gets as his Hollywood path seems to be stagnating.
I can’t understand how this has received such high praise – I believe it is only the youngsters of the generation who have some connection with young adults of the film.
People who are giving 10 out of 10 or ‘five out of five’ on an IMDb site which is clearly 10 star rating don’t understand the critic of films or genres, unfortunately they are a stereotype of sorts.
Get ready for a slow moving repetitive depiction of slow content, a film losing its value after time.
4 out of 10 / The 4 is just for the artistry.
