Critic Reviews for The American Meme

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (29) | Rotten (2)

  • "The American Meme" is a polemic as shallow and artificial as it thinks its subjects are.

    December 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • What is fascinating, and valuable, about American Meme is its ability to reveal the desperation, loneliness, and sheer Sisyphean tedium of ceaselessly chasing what will most likely end up being an ever-diminishing share of the online-attention economy.

    December 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Suffused with vapidity, the doc somehow finds its way to an unexpected sadness and maybe something deeper and cautionary.

    November 16, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's both highly entertaining and an essential snapshot of the narcotic voyeuristic parasitic American fishbowl.

    May 2, 2018 | Full Review…
  • When Paris Hilton is the lone voice of reason in a documentary, one can't help but worry for the next generation. North Korea can't fire the nukes soon enough.

    June 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A surprisingly insightful and even illuminating look at the influencers who entertain the online masses.
