Critic Reviews for The American Dreamer

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (1)

  • There is a fuzzy underground feel to this film: choppy editing, sudden freeze frames, maundering voiceover. It has archival value as a study of Hopper and a footnote to the American new wave.

    February 4, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The American Dreamer may fail as a definitive portrait of icon or movement, but works as a Polaroid snapshot of a fascinating man in a very specific place and time.

    April 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The American Dreamer is a 1971 documentary that follows Dennis Hopper as he puts together The Last Movie.

    November 2, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As a piece of cultural history it's kind of interesting. But as a documentary it's pointless.

    June 8, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Situated between critique and wake for Hopper's ideals, perhaps we can optimistically see it as a reminder that the perpetual end-of-times cinema seems to be facing is actually what keeps it going, no matter the dangerous levels of hubris.

  • What's striking about this documentary is that it proves Hopper was full of shit all along.
