Desson Thomson
Washington Post
In a movie in which time travel is used to rectify the past, it's too bad scriptwriters David and Janet Peoples didn't go through the time/space tunnel to work on that first draft again. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Fierce and disturbing, with a plot that skillfully resists following any familiar course. The film's hero fears that he's half-crazy, and for two hours Mr. Gilliam artfully keeps his audience feeling the same way. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
Gilliam's work is long on sensibility, short on sense. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It's refreshing to encounter a movie with a logical, intelligent approach to the dangers of zipping through time. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Mystifying, intriguing, even infuriating, it shows what happens when an unconventional talent meets straightforward material. Full Review
