Is it a good movie? It's a fascinating one, and that's close enough.

It's bold, captivating cinema, with a soundtrack that threatens to never leave your head.

At nearly three hours, "American Honey" is the most indulgent movie of the year, and the one in most need of a serious trim. It makes its point early on and then keeps repeating it until the honey turns sour.

Writer-director Andrea Arnold artfully sets love against money and manages one of the best endings in recent memory.

Too long by at least an hour, American Honey is a movie that would have had more to say if it said less. It is ultimately like a Jim Jarmusch movie without a sense of humour.
