This was a relatively interesting enough premise, but just not well put together. It reminded me a lot of 'The Ring' (Verbinski's version), but lacked its gravity, mood and sense of omnipresent fear. I lost interest...

I never thought this would be *physically* possible, but this film sucks and blows at the same time.

AmericanEast focuses on the lives of post 9/11 Arabs, Muslim, or anyone "with a tan." The plot of the movie isn't certain. There are too many stories that are trying to be told in one film. The story mostly centers on Mutstafa and his Jewish friend who plan on opening a middle eastern restaurant. Though the characters have so much passion the many stories being told could become other movies.

Clashing cultures, religious tolerance, hardship of adaptation, Jew, 9/11, Muslim, American. Captivating but somewhat exaggerated, some good acting and some not so good. Decent story and some likable characters.

Worth the watch, and I enjoyed the breakdown of the religious history going on there. But still sort of the whole "everybody gets together in the cafe/restaurant/barbershop and see a glimpse of their every-day lives."
