This review is from: American Beauty [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)I am neither inclined nor qualified to do a film review, but I can say that the audio and video quality is great (especially on Blu-Ray) as is the acting from the entire cast.
As an Indian, I had great fun laughing at the "antics" of the Americans. As a human being acutely aware of my own shortcomings and peculiarities, I identified with the characters and their individual stories in the movie and lived their lives vicariously.
In my opinion there is not a poor shot or a loose end in the film. The tying together of all the sub-plots is superb. I have always believed that the director makes or breaks a movie - so hats off to Sam Mendes. American Beauty is as far away from "formula films" as possible but he manages to pull it off with elan.
The movie stays with you long after it is over. You will be left wondering about the reactions and the future fates of the various people around Lester Burnham.
I have seen this film before and I can say that I will watch it again in future.
