      Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.

Movie Reviews

  • so clotted, so strident and so thickly cloaked in self-pity that its impassioned story risks becoming worryingly self-serving; If he's only felt able to keep himself in the background, Nate Parker film might have been a good deal more effective
    2 of 5 by Xan Brooks [The Guardian ]
  • it's the kind of head-smacking misfire that a more talented storyteller wouldn't even know how to make; Nate Parker's new film -- a clumsy found-footage political drama -- is so bad that he deserves to be canceled on artistic grounds alone
    Review rate : D by David Ehrlich [Indiewire ]
  • it's a good movie: tense, bold, angry, empathetic, provocative, observant, morally engaged. And also, to be honest, a trifle gimmicky. Yet that's tied to its power as a racially charged, socially urgent gut-punch drama
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • from beginning to end, "American Skin" is a jagged symphony of false notes, each one struck with a sledgehammer
    by Justin Chang [Los Angeles Times ]
  • even with a brief outburst of violence and an injury amid the generally heated atmosphere, the movie plods along without much of an internal motor, and the stalled jury deliberations get unblocked in the most cliched way possible
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
