Beauty Tour de Force American theater. Sam Mendes shows marked a good start on the web of characters that American Dream yearn to own - but, in the end, only one character reaches the raw in it.Having luck actually seen just recently, I could not help , but a comparison: Both films center around a microcosm of society in which all people, in their own unique way, we all succeed or just lucky. But here the similarities end: the characters go about happiness self-realization process by which they are increasingly aware of their meaningless existence, and continue to wallow in their own depravity. Happiness shows no signs of redemption; although beauty is in the audience of America has a sense of hope, salvation, while great characters endure a similar fate, or more accurately, their the occupation, is trapped.The central character of a person is the center = time, the father Lester, Kevin Spacey was impeccable. It is presented to us as a bit of a loser who conquered figure playing at home and at work. Ined RFE looks unhappy life where he was treated badly by his wife and daughter and his boss at work. Seemingly beyond redemption, Lester changed from enacting a loser.Mendes transformation very well: it shows Lester's relief Cosana pushed up against the backdrop of anger hick. The early scenes are well balanced, the formation of a steady rhythm of a TV commercial-like vignettes proved very amusing, if time disturbing. As shown in the film Lester: My life is like a commercial. And that rings true: as luck, all the characters hidden beneath the veneer of normalcy and decency, they still print, but the opposite: depressed, depraved and desperate.Lesters wife, played by Annette Benning, the most character driven success in the story that his late; most hopeless in tone films moral conviction. In order to be successful in life one needs to project the appearance of success is the maxim of real estate king, Buddy King. It is a term that echoes the film: a soldier Bennings, life is all about keeping up appearances. This is when Lester difference for her: The ability to save away the constraints of normal life and to the catalytic core desires.Lester a story in which the characters or supplementary pack (just like his daughter and Ricky ) or follow the price (just like his wife and corneal pay =). The irony inherent in this film, and it grows with resonance as the film draws to a conclusion that the only character who comes to actually free to sacrifice everything in order to achieve. But it is through his sacrifice that he is able to bring the characters to live a glimpse of hope in life.This film made me gasp for air: that hyper-realism, at the same time, a portrait of the suburban comedy , a pounding wake up to the truth, and cathartic sense of hope. Mendes shows some people who, to varying degrees, all our best for certain American dream, but so few achieve real. While at the same time one can struggle in tagging the film with the label feels good, that's the beauty of what American beauty that sits half-way between a desperate cry for help and a positive sense of happiness and a filled the theater at its best.
