Village Voice
First-time filmmaker Shi-Zheng Chen shows little aptitude for accurately transcribing the textures of human interaction; there's not a single credible performance here, not excluding Meryl Streep as a faculty Sinophile, doing that thing where she grinds every line through a gauntlet of tremulous inflections.

Andrew O'Hehir
Dark Matter has neither the technical command of an art-house film nor the manufactured intensity of a grade-B thriller, yet it's also too cheap and dirty to feel like a Hollywood-scale drama. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
Liu Ye is too inexpressive for his role's demands, and the movie doesn't build to his downfall: It just zaps itself there. Full Review

New York Daily News
Director Chen Shi-Zheng's film has a graceful energy, and three strong performances help make this serene drama - and its shocking conclusion - quietly moving. Full Review
Justin Chang
