Critic Reviews for The United States Of Autism

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • The documentary clarifies the breadth of the autism spectrum, from those who lack basic language and/or motor skills to those at the high-functioning end who do not seek a "cure" but rather social acceptance in the name of neurological diversity.

  • Although it favors breadth over depth, the documentary The United States of Autism offers a tender look at an eclectic array of children, their parents and other individuals affected by this ever-increasing developmental disability.

  • Amateurish and rushed.

    August 9, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Yes, the animated opening sequence has a professional polish that the rest of the film lacks, but the documentary's chosen angle is meaningful: The world of autism is as diverse as the nation.

    August 8, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The United States of Autism is an example of a well-meaning documentary that may do more harm than good.
