Critic Reviews for Norman Mailer: The American

All Critics (3)

  • A well-produced tribute to a complex and often exasperating personality.

    May 17, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Staccato and compelling, this fast-paced biography recounts some of his views and opinions--writings that alienated people and won supporters.

  • A documentary is only as fascinating as its subject, and, love him or hate him (most did the latter), Norman Mailer was one fascinating American.
