Last weekend the American was the number 1 movie in the box office so I decided to see what all the hype was about. The story line was very intriguing. The basic premise is that Clooney’s character is a spy of some kind trying to lay low. He was instructed to keep to himself and not make friends. So the theme of the movie is fighting the need for human contact and significant relationships when they might get him killed.
I thought the movie was well made and had a lot of good dialogue . . . when there was some. However, there was some nudity, so I would not recommend seeing this in theaters but waiting for a TV version of it.
