The movie told a good story but was an hour too long.

At two-and-a-half hours, AMERICAN HONEY is 45-60 minutes too long. Worth checking out though. Similar but less hypnotic than the English FISH TANK -- a cruel story of youth in our neoliberal wasteland -- the film brought home to me that rock'n'roll is not the sonic amniotic fluid of our youth. It is hip hop. Excellent soundtrack, with the exception of the country rock anthem which is the movie's title.

This movie has the worst ending. It started out ok but built into nada. I'm disappointed in Shia squandering his audience's attention and desire to see his talents. I still believe he has it in him but this wasn't it. THE LEADING YOUNG LADY IS OUTSTANDING considering this was her first ever acting "gig" ever. I hope to see her in more ventures.

Way too long, trashy, 162 minutes of watching misfits, hustlers and druggies travel cross country. Way over rated.
Watch for the bear. What happened to the white convertible the female supervisor drove? May have been stolen along with the van.
Jumping from one scene to another confusing. If this is an example of what our teenage society is like this country is in trouble. I wonder if any victims ever received their magazines?

Not a very uplifting movie, but it tells a story we don't often hear. It haunted me with questions about the characters and the people left in their wake.

Long, drawn out movie but I imagine the filmmaker and writer did it on purpose considering the lives of the main characters are long and drawn out.

A road trip film that follows teenager Star who joins a group of misfits on an adventure through the sad parts of the American Mid-West selling magazines. It doesn't have a strong plot per say but offers a solid character. It is a beautiful film with a lot of atmosphere.
