Rolling Stone
Recoing gives a performance that won't soon be forgotten. Neither will Time Out. It's a great movie.
100
Cantet has rich insights into this material, and brings them alive through sensitive acting and powerful filmmaking.

The New Yorker
This movie makes one grateful that a serious European art cinema still exists. [15 April 2002, p. 88]
90
Chicago Reader
Powerful.
90
Not just an especially subtle and thoughtful psychological drama, it's a provocative, even an unnerving one as well.
80
Film Threat
This is brilliant filmmaking.
80
Look carefully at that final scene; few happy endings have ever felt so downbeat.
80
Village Voice
Recoing's meta-performance is an unemphatic marvel, his placid countenance stretched tight over telltale flickers: a quickly suppressed smirk of incredulous delight, a nervous twitch of chagrin, an abrupt pang of guilt.
75
New York Daily News
A well-crafted indictment of the dark side of the modern work ethic.
50
New York Post
Looks great but moves like molasses, is more interesting than truly involving.
