Critic Reviews for American Skin

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (6)

  • "American Skin" is a jagged symphony of false notes, each one struck with a sledgehammer.

    September 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A self-serving call to action that tries to hide its basic incompetence behind a veil of righteous fury.

    September 3, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • So clotted, so strident and so thickly cloaked in self-pity that its impassioned story risks becoming worryingly self-serving.

  • The film becomes a series of familiar character types all getting their turn to talk.

    September 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a good movie: tense, bold, angry, empathetic, provocative, observant, morally engaged. And also, to be honest, a trifle gimmicky. Yet that's tied to its power as a racially charged, socially urgent gut-punch drama.

    September 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A clunky, heavy-handed film that takes a pressing contemporary issue and flattens it under two genres the writer-director seems ill-equipped to handle - the mockumentary and the courtroom drama.
