    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    As thrillers go, Rapt is long on intellect and short on action, a virtue to some degree, though not entirely. show more

    Lucas Belvaux's Rapt is two movies, both excellent, for the price of one. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    What lends Rapt its fascination is that it represents such a dramatic fall from grace for its hero. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Yvan Attal and Anne Consigny give understated but powerful performances as Graff and his wife, Françoise. Although a bit too long, Rapt makes for compelling viewing. show more

    Mark Feeney Boston Globe

    Rapt is smooth, cool, and efficient. It's a movie with very little wasted motion - or, for much of its length, wasted emotion. show more

    Jordan Mintzer Variety

    The issues come clashing together in an explosive package that, despite some snafus, remains fairly riveting to the end. show more
