A heartbreaking, soul cleansing film that delivers a knock-out emotional blow.
The film flows with an independent spirit that’s smart and actually treats the audience like intellectuals.
I have much respect for the intensely personal, visually stunning “American Honey,” the new avant-garde style film from director Andrea Arnold. How I wish it didn’t read as an overblown, self-indulgent disarray of semi-compelling ideas. This film is overly pretentious, rambling, and thinks it’s more important, and far better, than it actually is.
