good movie, maybe not for everyone

Personally I really liked American Beauty. It was a dark exploration of how a suburban mid-life crisis can shake up a family and neighborhood as well. I think Kevin Spacey did a fantastic job with the role and I really felt connected to him. Wasn't a psycho or anything just wanted more out of life at the wrong time and went about it in all the wrong ways. If you like to think about movies or like movies that don't really follow a linear path then this will be great for you. But if you're expecting something straight-forward and too the point then don't bother. Not that you wouldn't get it but you just wouldn't want to get it. But overall great movie with a great cast and solid story that anyone can claw at least a piece of themselves out of.

I did not see it ten years ago and I still would not see it today. This is not my type of movie. I stick to PG ratings and more family appropriate.
