    "At a time when the United States is experiencing so much uncertainty with a global pandemic, the ongoing protests against systemic racism and an upcoming presidential election, the film 'American Thief' could not be more relevant."
    Molly Shelly, Morning Sentinel
  • Highest Rating
    "It’s a cryptic, gloomy and paranoid thriller about hackers, election interference, the omnipotent personal data mining resource of the Internet, how it is used against us by marketers and how foreign operators can use that same data to turn us on each other."
    Roger Moore, Movie Nation
