American Skin (2019)
Critic Reviews for American Skin
"American Skin" is a jagged symphony of false notes, each one struck with a sledgehammer.
A self-serving call to action that tries to hide its basic incompetence behind a veil of righteous fury.
So clotted, so strident and so thickly cloaked in self-pity that its impassioned story risks becoming worryingly self-serving.
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.
The film becomes a series of familiar character types all getting their turn to talk.
