Totally enjoyable. Leave the movie and Spacey out of it. It's only music. Did I say only?

Ironic, now that we know more about Spacey.  Apparently he was acting naturally.  With the obvious difference, of course.

Perhaps a tribute today to the less illustrious Kevin Spacey?

Did you forget about the middle-aged woman banging the Realty King?

The movie was a critique about many different parts of society. Interesting how that one stuck in your craw.  

 
A fair point, and you're right, it was a multi-faceted movie. However, seeing as the central character was Kevin Spacey's menopausal man, I think it's not unreasonable for his middle-aged travails and fantasies to be the main thing that I remember about it.

Both films - American Beauty and K-Pax - are as great as are their soundtracks :) Kevin Spacey before Frank Underwood. (Not that F.U. isn't good. Just well..not as likable as these two characters, Prott especially).

Amazing movie and a great score by Thomas Newman. I'd love to hear more soundtracks on RP!

One of the best movie soundtracks ever. Thomas Newman is my fave modern composer.
The movie still remains, to me one of the best movies I've ever seen.
It also won best picture of the year.

Not so fast there, big boy.  I ride a motorbike and enjoy chatting up women from 20-year-olds to 80-year-olds, always without lecherous intent ... well, almost always without lecherous intent. My youth may be gone, but not my enthusiasm for life. 

And if I'm middle-aged now, I'll live to be 120.

Awesome soundtrack from Thomas Newman. American Beauty is on my list one of the Top 10 Best Movies of All Time.
Thomas Newman is the best composer today.
