American Honey

American Honey ★★★

Certain parts of this film really bothered me and really got under my skin but I also found this movie kind of intriguing? I’m not sure what to make of it and I didn’t fully get into it, but there are certain things about the filmmaking I really liked. Cinematography was excellent and I think it’s interesting and probably intentional that even though we get plenty of closeups of everyone and that made it feel more personal, I still felt kind of disconnected and like nobody was really fleshed out at all aside from Star and somewhat Jake (yes I realize this statement seems to contradict itself but I can’t word it any other way). Additionally, the scenery is really great and there’s a certain vibe to this movie that makes it special. Also something about this movie gave me a similar vibe to Spring Breakers. Could go up on a rewatch but this movie is so long not sure if I’ll feel like watching it again (I know cancel me).

60/100
