"The American Meme" is a polemic as shallow and artificial as it thinks its subjects are.
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.
A surprisingly insightful and even illuminating look at the influencers who entertain the online masses.
An engaging documentary that deserves your 'likes'.
I highly recommend The American Meme... it is going to change the way you view both social media and society.
Paris Hilton was the first to discover that you don't have to do anything special to get famous, you just have to be good at grabbing people's attention.
Without labouring the point, [director Bert] Marcus reveals the existential emptiness at the centre of this entire, precarious new economy.
It's like entering a bazaar, or a zoo, and not being able to take your eyes off what they present to us. [Full review in Spanish]
The American Meme says as much about its viewers and consumers as it does about its viral celebrities - perhaps even more.
The American Meme is a fascinating close-up on the lives of memes and the confounding value they have in the digital world.
