Great Moments in Soundtrack: American Beauty


American Beauty
Director: Sam Mendes
Writer: Alan Ball

Synopsis: Lester Burnham, a depressed suburban father in a mid-life crisis, decides to turn his hectic life around after developing an infatuation for his daughter’s attractive friend.


Lester sings in the car like I do, instrumentals and all.

“I won’t get to get what I’m after, ’till the day I die.”

“Well, all I know is I love shooting this gun!”

“…from now on, we’re  going to alternate our dinner music, because frankly…and I don’t think I’m alone here…I’m really tired of this Lawrence Welk shit.”
