Audience Reviews for Americana

Come watch David Carradine attempt to put you to sleep! Bonus: ambiguously gay mechanic and some dog killing! (Non-sarcastic bonus: Barbara Hershey's mid-seventies hotness.)

David Carradine directed and acted in this film about persistence and character. Barbara Hershey could have been more. Michael Greene was superb.
