I thought "American Beauty" is one of the most important movies made in the last ten years. It is probably one of the few films that made me feel something real. And I don't mean the "excitement" we all feel when the underdog wins in a film, or the sadness we feel when the hero's wife dies. It made me feel deeply sad and effected. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? It is ours to judge that. It deserved to win against its competition. Although "The Insider" was a great film. But the here were the nominees.

Sixth Sense - good movie, not great
The Cider House Rules - good movie, not great
The Green Mile - The most sociably irresponsible movie I have seen.
The Insider - Great movie, maybe should have won.

That's my two cents. "American Beauty" was to me a great film. The acting was intense and wonderful. The direction was perfect.

again, only my two cents.
