Critic Reviews for The Fall of the American Empire (La chute de l'empire américain)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

The film is always watchable, even for all of its sluggishness.

September 8, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A richly amusing rumination on the excesses and amorality of capitalism that plays like an ingeniously contrived mashup of film noir melodrama and Ealing Studios comedy.

Top Critic

Fall is Pretty Woman for socialists, a Capital-conscious fairy tale in which a nice guy not only attempts a perfect crime but wins the heart of a prostitute hitherto moved only by American dollars.

September 6, 2018 | Full Review…

[One] darkly amusing scene is classic Arcand. Unfortunately, The Fall of the American Empire doesn't consistently deliver that level of wit as it probes our love of money.

September 6, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The answers won't surprise you, and neither will anything that happens in this movie.

September 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A sardonic, solidly entertaining fusion of crime caper and state of the nation rumination that should find favour with arthouse audiences who have remained loyal to Arcand through the years.
