Critcial response[edit]

Roger Ebert wrote that "Godard said that one way to criticize a movie is to make another movie. "Pariah," a raw and unblinking look at the skinhead subculture, is a movie I'd like to show to those admirers of "Fight Club" who have assured me of their movie's greatness." Ebert gave the film three out of four stars.[1] The Los Angeles Times called the film "a volatile, edgy picture of strong visceral impact."[2] The New York Times said in their review that "Racist extremism is a problem. We need movies that address it. Chances are you already agree with these propositions. All "Pariah" succeeds in doing is screaming them at you, at maximum volume, over and over and over."[3]
