I’ve seen so many awesome movies recently. Let’s talk about it. The American. Loved it. George Clooney is stoic but understated as a hitman hiding out in Italy hoping to escape his past before it catches up to him. It’s like an existentialist Bourne movie. Might have been one of my top movies of the year if it wasn’t for some truly horrific and unnecessary CGI in a key scene. It irks me to no end that they did what they did and yanked me out of such a moving cinematic experience. Even so I loved the movie, but most of the time I just wish they had never invented CGI so directors would rely on practical effects.
