American Dharma

Critics Consensus

American Dharma offers a fascinating glimpse of a political influencer's public persona - and a frustrating missed opportunity to interrogate his actions and stated beliefs.

  • The movie's worth taking in, though, as a shaky confrontation with a very American kind of demon, one weaned on the shallow, heroic lies of Hollywood individualism, furious that life rarely works that way, and willing to wreck the house in response.

  • Kid-glove treatment of the former Donald Trump advisor is surprising coming from the hard-hitting interviewer of Robert McNamara and Donald Rumsfeld.

  • Give 'em enough rope, as they say. It's become increasingly fashionable to twist or ignore facts, but it's still important to present them for all to see.

  • Bannon has trafficked in racism, far-right conspiracy theories and other controversies during his career. Morris brings up some of it... but rarely nails Bannon with a tough follow-up question.

    December 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "American Dharma" is the gospel according to Stephen K. Bannon - a feature-length conversation with the Trump White House's former chief political advisor that is both more interesting and more depressing than you might be expecting.

  • Where Klayman's film was anecdotal, letting Bannon hang himself with his arrogant disingenuousness, Morris' feels more intellectually rigorous - an interrogation that, by comparison, may not come across strongly enough to some as an indictment.
