The Moviegoer's Guide to American Films

Editors Award Winner
Editor's Award Winner

This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.

TheMoviegoersGuidetoAmericanFilms Photo From Hollywood to Bollywood, Nollywood to Ghallywood, Tamalewood to Somaliwood (and yes that last one is in Columbus, Ohio), filmmaking and movie distribution has become a global phenomenon. But the most familiar of the art form certainly comes to mind when "American" is stamped within the film title. Herewith for your consideration are 11 films that have included that very word. The selections come from films I have personally viewed and represent works with a touch of gravitas beyond "American Pie," "An American Werewolf in London," or "American Ninja."

This is a reading quiz, not one designed for you speed-demon quiz-takers!

Sources include Wikipedia, IMDB,, and other web sites, and publications such as Premiere, JumpCut, Radical America and Cineaste. Special thanks to Peter Biskind (Seeing is Believing: How Hollywood Taught Us to Stop Worrying and Love the Fifties, 1983) and J. Hoberman and Ellen Willis (Village Voice) for their critical writings and reviews and conversations and the insights of my colleagues in the Angry Arts Film Collective and Radical America.
