Not since "Straight Time" with Dustin Hoffman has there been a film that more convincingly depicted the plight of the ex-con in his struggle to earn an honest living than the engaging "American Heart."
March 26, 2009
A gritty, well-meaning drama about a father and son on the fringes of society.
April 25, 2006
The film begins as a gritty look at down-and-out lives in Seattle, but becomes a more conventional father-son melodrama, though the acting Jeff Bridges and Edward Furlong is good.

Although Jack moves across America somehow the character development gets left behind and for a road trip movie to have a stagnant narrative is not a good sign.
