Critic Reviews for American

All Critics (3)

  • American is a patriotic movie that calls out the tragic mistake we foisted upon our own citizens out of fear and racism. This patriotism is not without its blemishes.

  • American raises far more provocative issues than can be addressed. But perhaps that's the point - to stimulate curiosity, speculation and intense conversation - as to what exactly is the definition of American, in these troubling and turbulent times.

  • Kudos to George Takei for this labor of love doubling as a very timely teachable moment about racial tolerance.
