Critic Reviews for American Dharma

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (5)

"American Dharma" succeeds neither as journalism nor as portraiture, neither as political critique nor as cultural survey nor as psychological study.

The camera stays on Bannon, and what we see is a man who reveals himself even as he thinks he's gaining the upper hand.

American Dharma doesn't just recap a dark chapter in the nation's history. It sounds the alarm for the rest of the world.

Though stylistically quite different from the director's The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara, it shows the same ability to engage the viewer in American politics through a strategy of detached passion.

On the rare occasions when Morris gets around to challenging Bannon (once every 20 minutes or so), Bannon ducks the question, and that's that.

I do not have quite so negative a view of [the] film-I thought it aestheticized the information flow of the digital era in interesting ways, and that it gave me a greater understanding of how Bannon thinks and thus a clearer idea of how to subvert him...
