    Pretty good. Maybe tried to cover too much too fast. Would have benifited from being a little longer. 3 months ago

    American Made makes the best use of Tom Cruise's shit-eating grin since I don't when, as the real life pilot who got himself tangled into very south-of-the-border scandal of the early 80s - the drug cartels, Manuel Noriega, the Nicaraguan Contras - played as an absurdist comedy, more The Big Short than The Wolf of Wall Street, though one might recognize the latter's "based on a true story" rags to riches to rags formula. Bourne's Doug Liman shoots it handheld, as is his wont, which almost turns it into a documentary - especially with the video confessional asides - but it doesn't quite achieve the style. Did love the retro video bits at the front and back of the film though. Ultimately, not a must, but still a fairly amusing look at how the big news of the Reagan era were connected. Especially interesting if you remember that time, and I personally did (Iran-Contra was my first scandal!), but fellow audience members who weren't alive back then still appreciated the glib history lesson. 3 months 2 weeks ago

    I don't put a lot of goodwill on him, but this is the best Cruise movie since Eyes Wide Shut, and so far the best movie I have seen in 2017 (granted I don't get out to see movies as often as I want to). It does help explain the complicated mess that was the Iran-Contra Affair. This was a lot of fun and at times suspenseful. 3 months 3 weeks ago
