“Americana” is a modern slice of paranoia cinema. There are aspects of “The Conversation” and even a twinge of “The Parallax View” at play. That being said, it’s fairly standard for a rather short film. The idea behind the short film dubbed Americana isn’t as clever as it seems. But, I guess that comes with thinking about the film after the fact. The cast is rather stellar, it’s just that I wish they had more to do. While not a bad film, it’s not all that memorable.
