Daily DVD

American Beauty. One of my favorite films of all time. I was lucky enough to work at the theater when this came out, and watched the trailer an unhealthy amount of times. I was surprised to read about the hipster backlash against this movie, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. It's been just the right amount of time since it came out for people who were younger when they watched it to be nice and cynical about it. I think it holds up, though - I will never get tired of watching it. I remember thinking it was the screenplay I always wanted to write and was very envious of how twisted and sharp it was. Just writing about it now makes me want to watch it again! Love it.
