Reviews
  • Silverscreenanalysis.com: The gun-play kicks in with a self-awareness that really makes it pop. It gets bloody and elegant all at the same time and I had fun with the sporadic tones, and noir atmosphere this one delivers. The hyper-reality was tuned-in just right to create a fun escape into a violent world of maniacal villains, art, sex, and gun-fights.
  • Shadowsonthewall.co.uk: Hirsch  [has] fun along the way, veering wildly from thoughtful to petulant to maniacal.
  • Markreviewsmovies.com: American Night portrays plenty of corruption, in the underworlds of both art and crime, and chaos, especially in its action-heavy climax.
  • Flickeringmyth.com: Style, gritty suspense, and colorful characters.
