If you are looking for a light weight Clooney romp, this isn't it..... on the other hand if you are looking for a 70s style film that harkens back to Le Samourai or Blast of Silence this is your film.

Really Fantastic Art Film!

If you appreciate the following references, you will likely enjoy this movie: I think this movie is like a cross between Le Samourai and Branded to Kill as directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. The American is very "process oriented", slowly paced, and moves smoothly from grand panoramas to minute details. It uses the tools in an art filmmaker's tool kit to create an multifaced crystalline metaphor for the sad (paranoid, overextended) state of American foreign policy.
