“Their scheme is so stupid one could easily see writer-director Leyton turning the tale into a Coen Brothers-y farce in which bad things happen to dumb criminals. But instead American Animals conjures a pit-of-your-stomach dread, like when you know you’ve blown it but there’s no going back. It wallows in the cold, clammy wait to get caught.” – North Shore Movies, 07/12/2018
