Critic Reviews for American Dreamer

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5)

Directed with claustrophobic, docudrama-style intensity by Derrick Borte and featuring a career-best dramatic performance by [Jim] Gaffigan, "American Dreamer" is a dark and intense and sometimes brutally violent slice of rotted life.

September 20, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Gaffigan brings plenty of gravitas to "American Dreamer," a low-key neo-noir that starts out as a character sketch about a broken man, and then takes an even darker turn.

September 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Since none of the characters are terribly bright or likable, the experience of watching the film is like being trapped inside a locked car stuck in neutral.

September 19, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"American Dreamer" turns over several repellent plot points before settling on a cheap ironic ending.

September 12, 2019 | Full Review…

A tightly wound, mostly believable mix of genre riffs and real-world nightmares.

October 8, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a far cry from Gaffigan's typical optimism, and not anywhere near as funny. But as is often the case in comedy, American Dreamer works because it feels true, and bleakly, unapologetically possible.
