Went to see The Clooney in "The American". Didn't like it as much as Roger Ebert did, but I liked it. But I can understand you'd be disappointed if you expected a Clooney and/or action film (I've heard several people say that it was awful). It's a very European film - lots of atmosphere, not so much plot. I know the director mostly as a photographer, and I *think* he directed the video for David Sylvian's Orpheus, so I had my expectations set in the right range. As with most things in life, your opinions will depend greatly on your expectations.
And a nice surprise: music by Herbert Grönemeyer. I did not know he did cinema scores. Sweet.
