★★★★½ I went into this expecting a bad over-stylized white fratboy heist movie retread but i got something much sweeter. Everything about this film centers on the facades that we put on every day in order to not just impress other people, but simply to be different. We're influenced so much by media and it freaking drowns us into us creating our own characters and telling our own stories that aren't necessarily true, but fit the narratives that we have in our brains to align with the facade. This film is the most ANTI heist movie I've ever seen, as we not only watch the heist horrifyingly play out, but afterwords we REALLY see the effects of how it not only affected the criminals, but their victims and their families as well. It chokes their psyches. Really gave me Boogie Nights climax vibes. Sure, it is all straight white males performing this crime, but what it has to SAY about that is really interesting. They're fucking American Animals. Great movie. Not Paddington 2 great, but still great.

The 'based on truth' telling of the heist and the lives of the guys involved would have been enough for a good movie. However, with the interspersed commentary from the actual people involved in the heist (the librarian included), this transcends into something quite excellent. A remarkable story and a wonderfully crafted movie.

This is the first realistic heist movie. Loved that it’s not only about the heist but also about the way it affects the four protagonists, their families and the victim. [spoiler]The _Ocean’s Eleven_ reference was perfect. Also, nice _Reservoir Dogs_ reference. Not my favorite _Tarantino_ either More

If I had've known in advance that _American Animals_ was going to be a True Crime Doco that was 95% re-enactment, I probably wouldn't have watched it. Because that sounds like everything I hate about American television. Glad I didn't though, because that meant I did watch it, and _American Animals_ More

Wow, it's been a while since I've seen a movie, in the theater, with MoviePass. I guess they're finally making money off me. I'm back, re-energized, and glad I picked this to be my next watch. American Animals is the true story of four boys who got themselves into a bad situation. An More
