Great ideas, well shot, bit let down by the ending, but don't let that put you off!,
This review is from: American Mary [DVD]  (DVD)
I agree with all the positive reviews. My only personal gripe was the strangely flat ending. It felt like a few things got rushed... and I don't mean the loose ends that remained unanswered.
It just felt like they edited out maybe five minutes of lead-up to the final scene - like they were over-budget or under time constraints?
However, as Lucky McKee showed with The Woman, you can create a brilliant low-to-mid budget "indie horror" movie and get the pacing and story arc delivered perfectly.
American Mary just needed a bit more of a lead-up to the final scenes. Sorry I can't be more specific but I don't want to give away any spoilers!
Well worth purchasing for the collection and giving it at least one more watch, but frustratingly an "almost-classic" for me.
