    I don't know if I should be watching this movie because of Kevin Spacey, but 'American Beauty' is a lustfully dark, dreamy but twisted movie. I hate to say it right off the bat, but everything (especially Spacey) was incredible here. The acting, the cinematography, the use of colors, the script, Sam Mendes' direction, and Newman's score (here's another director-composer duo to add to the list) were all on top of their A-game. It's impressive to see that this was Mendes' directorial debut. Overall, a solid film; it's too bad it hasn't aged well.
