Critic Reviews for The American Meme

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (4)

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

Dec 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.

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

A surprisingly insightful and even illuminating look at the influencers who entertain the online masses.
