The Fourth Wall, a film and television blog at the California Literary Review website, has named American Me amongst 100 Greatest Gangster Films, ranking 72nd.

Inspired by true events, American Me follows the life of Montoya Santana, from his early brushes with the law that led to a near lifetime of incarceration, and ultimately his death at the hands of his own prison gang. The film is entirely unromantic in its look at gang culture and life, at time blatantly brutal in its dissection of crime, violence and the misguided machismo that fuels it.
