An American Journey is a movie about the making of a book, which puts it in a fairly narrow category.
The film's incredibly understated with its depiction of a tarnished land of the free and promises to captivate Europeans and venturesome Americans willing to subject themselves to a bruised utopia.
A mildly engaging documentary that's occasionally insightful, but not quite thorough and illuminating enough to make a truly strong impression.

An impressionistic look at The Americans, Robert Frank's groundbreaking book of photographs, including interviews with some of the figures involved.
