It's often hard to understand Barry's motives beyond caricature-broad assumptions about his (lack of) character.
"American Made" may be superficially a condemnation of the hypocritical American impulse to take drug suppliers' money with one hand and chastise users with the other.The hypnosis aspect adds even more eeriness to the whole thing. Also, I think that's Keith Stanfield in a few scenes, but he's not listed in the cast. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). The makers of the based-on-a-true-story black comedy "American Made" fail to satisfactorily answer one pressing question: why is CIA operative and Colombia drug-runner Barry Seal's story being told as a movie and not a book?What's being shown in this film that couldn't also be expressed in prose?
