"Tom Gregory of The Huffington Post wrote, "American Primitive is the “why” that drove early activists like Harvey Milk and the Stonewall demonstrators to demand equality. It’s a film about the struggle to redefine a peaceful, safe home against hatred, misunderstanding, and family law at the time when homosexuality was classified as mental illness. Set in 1973, this indie gem personalizes the mistrust, alienation, and prejudice that same-sex families still fight against today." Like Tom Gregory, Quiet Earth wrote "the acting was top notch", and praised the performance of Josh Peck. They wrote the film had fantastic "beginning feeling and production style", and spoke well of the film's theme and storyline.  'Seattle Gay News praised the film, writing "I love that this Queer love story is told through the eyes of Madeline. It's an unusual way into a Queer story and one that provides interesting insights from a fresh perspective. American Primitive is a nicely turned out little film that I highly recommend".
