    For all of its access and exposure, American Teen seems skin-deep. It's well shot, with good production values and lots of cool music. But it's fun and facile in much the same way reality TV is.

    Loaded with obtuse symbolism, the film is not only hard to understand, it isn't much fun trying to figure it out.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 James Greenberg
    Engrossing and well-researched documentary.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 James Greenberg
    Exotic and thoughtful.

    The film and the controversy should generate interest at the boxoffice, but it's more a story about media manipulation and parental responsibility than art.

    The only misstep Jun makes, and it's hard to fault him given the budget, is the mediocre and at times heavy-handed use of music. Still, it's an unqualified success from the heartland.

    Even if it's a one-joke movie that runs out of steam, director Scott Sanders manages to keep the gag going for 90 minutes.

    Foulkrod's film is not about taking a political side, though it is clear she is strongly opposed to the war in Iraq. Her focus instead is on the dehumanizing of eager young men and their transformation into killing machines.

    For much of the way, the film just feels like it's pressing too hard to make an impression.

    • 70 James Greenberg
    One hell of a date movie. A surgical examination of the male psyche based on David Foster Wallace's book and written and directed by John Krasinski, there is plenty of food for thought and argument.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 James Greenberg
    More dumb than funny.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 James Greenberg
    Compelling portrait of famed radical lawyer by his daughters.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 James Greenberg
    More atmospheric than compelling.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 James Greenberg
    Succeeds so beautifully because of a compelling story, great acting, intelligent writing and sensitive direction.
