Critic Reviews for The American Meme

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Suffused with vapidity, the doc somehow finds its way to an unexpected sadness and maybe something deeper and cautionary.

It's both highly entertaining and an essential snapshot of the narcotic voyeuristic parasitic American fishbowl.

May 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Unpacks and reveals the ecosystem of social media celebrity with incredible thoughtfulness.

The American Meme works best when it reveals the subtle pain behind much of the manufactured fantasy.

December 12, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
