American Rust: Season 1 (2021)


Season 1
American Rust

Critics Consensus

American Rust's tale of America lost is a worthy one, but despite an A-list cast it simply doesn't have the narrative clarity or heft necessary to do its subject matter justice.

Audience Reviews for American Rust: Season 1

    It's a great show. Jeff Daniel's crushes it with his role. If your from that part of the country then you'll know they did a good job I'm the realism department. Watching it is a blast from the past from my South Western Pennsylvania childhood! It takes an episode to really get going but levels off into what seems to be a great show!

    I completely disagree with RT's rating. This show highlights what happens to Americans and their communities in the rust belt. The writing, acting, directing are all top notch.

    What others call "slow," I call subtle and effective character development. Excellent start to the series that captures the claustrophobia of life in small town America. This show is a must watch in my household. Simmering intensity, and dubious morality shows how truly desperate life can be outside the large urban areas in this country.

    Good heavens this is slow and boring. Nothing grabs you, never even the characters played by some phenomenal talent. The writing and directing is FLAT, drawn out and just far too boring to keep watching.

    The 1st episode moved as quickly as rust itself. Hopefully, episode 2 revs up to a snail's pace. Will update next week...
