American Honey

American Honey ★★★★½

It's got an energy to it that is unlike anything else I've seen. It never settles down and makes you feel really comfortable, there's always something ugly hiding somewhere. It's that blend of everyday beauty and ugliness that Arnold is really great at. Just these shots of things that don't seem important, and maybe they're not, but maybe they are to some people. Sasha Lane is fantastic, too, not even for a debut role, just plain one of the best performances I've seen this year. She really carries this film, doesn't really let you in, but she's still got so much going on in her eyes and all the shots where she's just staring into the distance. Shia definitely deserves a mention as well. Swings perfectly from mumbling and smiling to raging and screaming.
