I America explored the struggles of Filipino-Amerasian in the search of their identity. Bella Padilla's performance was really convincing and she proved that she has a place in the industry. There are some points in the movie that didn't work but the ending for me is really good. I really like the double meaning in the title.
I america didnt work for me. F***ing shaky cam! Made me dizzy! The film was too self-aware. The story had no direction. It didnt' know what it wants to be. It failed to deliver it's message effectively. Yes there were a few laughs, but not very necessary. Confrontation scenes were overkill. Ugh! Many times i wished the movie had ended earlier than it did.
