Anthony Pedone's DIY drama surges like a heart-on-sleeve anthem, amps cranked to 11 in a hymn of righteous malcontent and surprising grace. Although set in the 1990s, "An American in Texas" feels strangely relevant to the nation’s current, never-more-polarized moment. It captures an angry, crackling and defiantly disordered underclass of punk-rock kids caught between their rage and their dreams in small-town Texas, fighting a doomed battle in a world built to crush them into conformity.
