Anton Corbijn‘s The American (Focus Features, 9.1) will screen for press two days before it opens on Wednesday, September 1st. My sense is that Corbijn has made an exquisite-looking, almost arty-type film, but it may not be juicy enough for Joe Popcorn. My only other comment is that George Clooney‘s hair is too short in this thing. It looks a little Third Reich-y, too intense, something.
