Critic Reviews of "American Beauty"CNN.comFebruary 22, 2015
American Beauty is deeply disturbing, acerbically funny, brilliantly acted, breathtakingly original and highly sophisticated.Minneapolis Star TribuneFebruary 22, 2015
This is Spacey's best performance since he took home an Oscar for The Usual Suspects.Wall Street JournalMay 08, 2014
Why, then, did I enjoy it so little? Because of its unrelenting self-importance: American Beauty wants us to know, in every shot at every turn, just how clever and mercilessly cutting it is.New York ObserverMay 08, 2014
Kevin Spacey gives the performance of his life.Seattle TimesJanuary 28, 2014
Alan Ball's script is a terrific piece of material, and Mendes responds directly to its subversive, provocative vision of a curdled American Dream.New York Daily NewsJanuary 28, 2014
American Beauty approaches a manic, almost cartoonish edge without falling over. Both Spacey and Bening use extraordinary comic timing to bring these very sad, lost characters to life.Baltimore SunFebruary 22, 2015
A tightly coiled rage seethes beneath the pretty surface of American Beauty, a wickedly funny black comedy directed by newcomer Sam Mendes.New TimesFebruary 22, 2015
This seriocomic autopsy of middle-class virtue has the capacity to startle and surprise, and a gift for finding grim humor at the heart of tragedy.Times (UK)February 22, 2015
This engrossing centrepiece meshes with subplots involving Burnham's dysfunctional family and unbalanced neighbours, in a virtuoso study of isolation, repression and fulfilment. Mendes infuses the lush visuals and lyrical script with dramatic panache.sbs.com.auFebruary 22, 2015
The writing is acidically amusing without ever trying to conceal the loneliness at the heart, the direction a perfect frame for the characters and the wonderful performances that create them.Three Movie BuffsFebruary 22, 2015
Kevin Spacey is the greatest actor of his generation, hands down, no contest.Sky MoviesFebruary 22, 2015
The film is stunningly poignant, and when first time cinema director Mendes turns his hands to the serious aspects of the disintegration of human souls, the funny lurches to the profound with hardly a flicker of disruption.
