American Dreamer is a stunner.

August 29, 2019
American Dreamer is a stunner. The acting, especially the interplay between Gaffigan and Jones, is beautifully nuanced and imbued with a verisimilitude seldom found in an indie film. The spare score by Bryan Senti is beautifully wrought and ratchets up the tension to a fever pitch. And director Borte's impressive command of the narrative, with its multiple twists and turns, pins the viewer to their seat until the final claustrophobic conclusion. Smart indie films like this dont come around too often. See it however/wherever you can.

Smart indie films like this don't come around too often. See it however/wherever you can and then bookend the experience by picking up a copy of Bradbury's short stories.

It's a perfectly solid take on the territory, but by the time the credits roll hasn't offered much that hasn't been seen before.

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