Eric Kohn
IndieWire
"The most disturbing movie of the year (...) 'American Dharma' doesn’t just recap a dark chapter in the nation’s history. It sounds the alarm for the rest of the world."  POS
United StatesUnited States
Owen Gleiberman
Variety
"It’s hard to escape the feeling that Errol Morris got played (...) Errol Morris doesn’t question Bannon, let alone push him to the wall"  NEG
United StatesUnited States
Deborah Young
The Hollywood Reporter
"A perfectly frightening exchange of views (...) It shows [Morris'] ability to engage the viewer in American politics through a strategy of detached passion"  POS

"The result is a fascinating but also in some ways frustrating film"  NEU

Mike D'Angelo
AV Club
"Morris doesn’t allow blatant lies to go unchallenged, but he also wisely avoids putting Bannon on the defensive (...) Errol Morris, unlike most documentarians, is as much stylist as journalist"  POS

David Alm
Forbes
"What Morris may have intended as a chilling glimpse into the calculating evil of a right-wing ideologue could easily be viewed, by Bannon’s fans, as a fawning tribute."  NEU

"[It] only reaffirms what we know about Steve Bannon (...) [It feels] like listening to the arsonist calmly explain why he set the fire as we continue to watch it rage (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 4)"  NEG
United StatesUnited States
Ben Kenigsberg
The New York Times
"[It] is less an act of muckraking than it is a psychological thriller, with Bannon its implacable villain."  POS
United StatesUnited States
Peter Sobczynski

"A frustratingly hollow look at Bannon that is ultimately so benign in its portrayal of the man that it comes closer to an example of fan service than a full takedown (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 4)"  NEG
