Critic Reviews for American Venus
Never settling on a consistent tone or establishing a convincing context for its central character, the movie ultimately seems to grow bored even with itself.
Writer-helmer Bruce Sweeney can't decide if the lead figure is a comic caricature or pathetic mental case; his resolution is so desultory it feels like he ceased caring.
As a filmmaker with a gift for social satire, Sweeney isn't at his best focusing almost exclusively on one character.
Audience Reviews for American Venus
Another movie I disliked. Celia is a disturbed woman who is addicted to handguns and needs to manipulate the people around her, especially her daughter. But I learned nothing by watching it, other than perhaps an appreciation for Canada's gun laws.
