Critic Reviews of "An American Crime"Todd McCarthy VarietyJanuary 18, 2007
Not even the considerable talents of lead thesps Catherine Keener and Ellen Page can alleviate the artistic nullity that is An American Crime.Christopher Lloyd Sarasota Herald-TribuneSeptember 02, 2010
By instead focusing more on the character of Gertrude Baniszewski, the film relegates Sylvia Likens to a cypher with no real identity - she's simply a vessel for abuse.Pablo Villaça Cinema em CenaAugust 22, 2008
Um projeto que encara a desgraça alheia como mero trampolim para o entretenimento.Matt Noller Slant MagazineAugust 18, 2008
If Eli Roth were to direct a Lifetime movie, it might look something like An American Crime.Joseph Proimakis Movies for the MassesMay 16, 2008

Gut wrenching performances, a well structured narrative, and a great cast makes "An American Crime" one of the finer movies to depict one of the most gruesome travesties of the twentieth century...Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 22, 2007
A misfire and the most problematic film at Sundance, this fact-based tale of child abuse is disturbing, appalling, and voyeuristic due to poor conception and execution by writer-director O'Haver who ironically has been wanting to make it for 20 years.Eric D. Snider eFilmCritic.comFebruary 18, 2007
What purpose does this film serve? I have watched it, and I have contemplated it, and I can come up with no good reason for it to exist.Kim Voynar CinematicalFebruary 09, 2007
(Catherine) Keener, always a versatile actress, takes on the challenge of portraying perhaps one of the most unlikable villains in the history of true crime, and tries to find the humanity buried somewhere within her.Sally Foster Film ThreatJanuary 27, 2007
The real high point of this film is Catherine Keener's captivating performance in the role of the troubled and possessive Gertie, vacillating between disturbingly abusive and imploringly sympathetic the way only a truly manipulative psychopath really can.Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood ReporterJanuary 19, 2007
Tragic tale of child abuse fails to make any sense of the crime.
