Format: DVD
I loved this film, found the energy in it to be amazing and the backdrop of the Spanish town and countryside to be beautiful. Joshua Jackson is just gorgeous in this and conveys the 'American lost in Europe but loving it' perfectly. If ever something made me want to visit Spain this is it- the fly-fishing and camping scenes alone are worth it but then to watch the 'making of' and find that they really did run with the bulls was - well- crazy!!!!! All I could think all the way through was 'wow!!' If you are an old romantic like me but also- like me- love a bit of adventure and craziness- this is perfect!

I can't really write a full review because soon after the movie started,after the Bullrun,which is bad enough,it showed a live Bull fight,in all its gory wicked evil,torturing the poor thing, blood gushing out its back.
At this point I stopped watching, couldn't take any more and threw it in the bin.
There was no need to show Bullfight in so much detail,we all know goes on,thankfully the Spanish are at last realising that most cilivised people wish to see an end to this barbaric practice, and are banning it from TV and will be banned in certain areas shortly.
I was looking forward to seeing a decent movie,Spanish scenery,and customs, pity.
I did keep the case however........

Crossroads: Enter the Corporate World Versus Enter the World of Living 31 May 2006
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Kevin Noland makes a fine debut in both writing and directing this colorful, insightful, low-key exploration of the age old Apollonian Dionysian conflict. For a first film, despite some minor technical glitches (overexposed photography at key moments, a soundtrack that eats the dialogue before it is audible), Noland proves himself a keen observer of life, of philosophy, and of character studies. He is definitely an artist to watch.

Chris McKinley (Joshua Jackson in yet another fine performance) has just finished college and is ending his summer holiday in Spain with only three days before he returns to an important corporate position in the US. He is traveling with two friends, Ryan (Timm Sharp) and Michelle (Ruthanna Hopper) who are lovers, and they end their holiday in Pamplona, Spain just as the festival of the bulls is happening. Chris' backpack is stolen and with it his passport, credit cards, all semblances of civilization..., and he plunges out of despair into the wildness of the running of the bulls. He meets two important influences: American expatriate bar owner Riccardo who spouts forth 'live for the moment' concepts, and the beautiful and intoxicating Adela (Leonor Varela) who embodies all that is fascinating about the beauty of Spain. The four young people set out on a hike to fly fish, carouse, and live with nature, and this excursion into Spain's gorgeous countryside affects the foursome: Ryan and Michelle decide to part ways and Chris and Adela...well, the story has a fine ending!

Noland respects the viewer and offers his tale of discovery with minimal dialogue, some terrific music, exciting footage of the running of the bulls and bullfights, and some hallucinogenic views of nature. Both Joshua Jackson and Leonor Varela light up the screen. Ruthanna Hopper (Dennis Hopper's daughter) not only acts well, she also has been part of this project since its inception, is one of the producers, and adds a credibility to the story. So despite the occasional technical flaws, this is a little film of joy, a celebration of discovery the important facts of living. Grady Harp, May 06

A Must See for Any Traveller... 31 Mar 2006
By C. Farrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Anyone who travels internationally will get it, those who don't travel may miss the internal combustion of excitement this movie brings to the viewer. Director/writer Kevin Noland's first feature depicting the pensiveness of a young graduate on his first trip abroad to Spain truly captures the raw emotion and confusion that come with choosing life's path, or letting life's path choose you.

genuine ... as close as it gets to experiencing Spain 16 Aug 2006
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I agree with another reviewer - if you've been there you will get it. I was in Spain this summer and went to Pamplona and did El Camino de Santiago. I can see why the lack of an exciting storyline or a twist can disappoint many used to Hollywood cinema. In the words of Adela, "Nothing is as predictable as Hollywood". This movie is genuine, except for the gorgeous woman. The footage is excellent, especially the running of the bulls. I wish they would have shown more of El Camino. But this movie is not meant to close the loop, just show us the questions that arise in all of us.

Run with the bulls! 3 Aug 2006
By W. Maras - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Americano was a very enjoyable movie. A fun, funny and sensuous trek through some of Hemingway's old haunts. It reminded me of my collage days. I immediately wanted to head to Europe and hike through Spain, Italy, France or Croatia. In life sometimes we have to make a decision we will regret later in life . . . Great move!
