Village Voice
In its ability to transform the drably mundane into something otherworldly, Marathon offers one of the most inventive reimaginings of the MTA since D.A. Pennebaker's 1953 cine-poem "Daybreak Express." Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
The beauty of Mr. Naderi's filmmaking lies in his combination of acute social observation (with the subway population providing its habitual cross section of New York classes and cultures) and pure, almost mathematical formalism. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
The drama is as obsessive as its heroine. Crossword mavens may enjoy it, but it's too monomaniacal for comfort. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
With so little action or even insight, Marathon is far too long at only 74 minutes. Perhaps for the sequel, we can come along as Gretchen watches paint dry. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The film is nearly unendurable. Full Review
