As you may know, American Teen is my favorite movie of the year so far. It’s the first documentary that has true mainstream appeal. And by that I mean beyond political bounds, and able to tap the minds of the post-MTV / American Idol generation.
I was just able to catch the film for a second time at SXSW, and the audience ate up every minute, and even applauded during some key moments of the story. Our friends at Collider have a photo of the theatrical American Teen poster. I have cleaned the image up a little for your viewing pleasure. I love the minimalistic clean design, but Im not sure this will appeal to the core demographic that this movie needs to attract.
American Teen hits theaters on July 25th 2008.
