Review by Bether
4 stars out of 4

American Beauty is one of the best films I have ever seen. It mixed together realism and idealism with such finise. "There is so much beauty in this world". It hurts to think about that because we all know it's true, but can't describe it perfectly or even hope to. Society has simply muddled and distorted our views. Given us the images of what we should find to be "beautiful". Who's to say that beauty isn't a lost plastic bag blowing in the wind? I think when watching this movie we all saw that bag as beautiful. Our's eyes are just jaded to the world as we might see it and Lester acheived looking at it in a different point of view. Anyone who critizes this picture because it's "jaded" obviously doesn't see that it is exactly the opposite; American Beauty shows how everyone could view the world disregarding the cliches.
