This community seems to be quiet, but am hoping maybe a new post or two will get things going. I had to join this community because American Beauty I think will always remain a top 5 fav movie of all time for me. It made a great impact on me in the cinema upon first viewing and still does even on repeats. I make a point of not watching it too often so not to loose its effect. It was also the movie that bought Kevin Spacey to my attention and I've been following his career ever since. :)
Lots of great dialogue in this movie. What are people's favourite?
i can't believe i was the last person who posted.

Last night I had the pleasure of watching "Swimming With Sharks", in which Kevin Spacey stars as boss from hell Buddy Ackerman, studio vice president of Keystone Films.
When film school graduate Guy (Frank Whaley) is hired as his assistant, he soon realises he must endure public humiliation, putting up with his new employer's unreasonable demands and simply sitting back as the "professional" executive charms the pants off every would-be actress who passes his office doors. On top of this, Guy has some respectable ideas, but after Ackerman claims a particularly engrossing script Guy has written as his own, the weedy assistant decides it's time for revenge...
Kevin Spacey never fails to pull off the bad guy in films, and my personal favourite (other than Beauty of course), has to be Se7en. Spacey glitters in the all star cast and produces one of his most chilling performances. I can watch this film time and time again and Spacey still produces eerie vibes!
Of any actor or actress in American Beauty, which is your favourite film of theirs, based on performance, character, or just the fantastic storyline?
Wow, so many new members! First off I'd like to welcome you all to the community, I've been a busy bee lately which is why there isn't much stuff happening, but that's going to change shortly ;)

I'm new to the community but an absolutely massive fan of the film. It's one of the most beautiful, entertaining, well-cast, well-acted and well-made films of my generation. Every minute of the film spoke volumes to me!. The ending was unbelievable. I cried and cried and cried!. The soundtrack was phenomenal as well, 3 cheers for Thomas Newman!!. Anyway, just thought i'd voice my opinions on it and i'm quite honoured to be part of a community who loves and enjoys the film!
So, Hey! Let's discuss. Would we all want a Nazi plate, now that we've seen the film? Not that we love Nazis or anything, just that we would want something from the movie. If you do love Nazis, you need therapy or need to stop/start taking drugs!
