    The sex scenes were so long I felt like I also had sex with Shia LaBeouf

    It's captivating, authentic- American Honey's story flows onto the screen more naturally than any film I've seen in recent memory. It feels as though I'm watching real people live real lives, in places I've actually been. Sasha Lane and Shia LeBoeuf both played their characters brilliantly. An easy five stars.

    On the positive side, Sasha Lane is fantastic as Star, a young girl who signs on with a group of what appear to be homeless teens, travelling the country selling magazine subscriptions and generally having a good time. There is an undeniable and contagious vibe about the film, created by the enthusiasm of the cast, the soundtrack, and Andrea Arnold's hyperactive directorial style. On the negative side, it clocks in at an inexplicable 163 minutes, which is about an hour longer than it should take to get the point across. Every other scene, it seems, is either somewhere on a hotel property or inside a packed van. Had the director had the common sense to trim down the running time, it could have been impactful. As it is, it's just frustrating and tiring.

    I loved it. From the soundtrack to the cinematography, to the cast, this movie gave me early 2000s white trash vibes and I was so here for it.

    If you're like me and you've COVIDevoured every film in existence, this was a helluva find. Sasha Lane is subdued, charming. I'd imagine American Honey is on Gen Z's Mt. Rushmore.

    An unconventional coming of age drama with a risky narrative and unhinged performances that offers a rewarding viewing experience that isn't completely satisfying.

    This movie is exactly my type; weird and quirky people doing weird and quirky things. I just like this movie so much that its long run time doesn't bother me. The movie is greatly visually appealing and stylized. I love the characters as well as their interactions.
