Two girls travel the country in search of a simple answer to the question “What is the American dream?” They talk to everyone from George Stephanopolous, to John Waters to Ben & Jerry to Hunter S. Thompson to Chuck D. Great stuff — fresh and honest from two very wise young girls. Shot in Hi-8mm video and blown up to 35mm, “Anthem” proves that content is clearly more important than technical competency. The only flaw is that the movie climaxes about four times. (Not bad for a night of passion, but frustrating for a movie.) It could use about a half hour cut from it, but still highly entertaining.
