American Honey

American Honey ★★★★★

i don’t remember why i only rated this movie four stars the first time i saw it. this is so complex, raw, down to earth. i can’t think of any other recent film that showcases the class struggle in america; there are people who buy useless material items like big fancy houses and expensive cars while others go without food and shelter because they cannot buy what they need to live. the portrait this film paints is an ugly one, but it’s essential and absolutely endlessly facianating with its intricacies. pay attention. this isn’t just about the youth of america, this is about all of america.
