  • The fragmented and existential atmosphere, reminiscent of a Paul Auster novel, is an interesting reward for sticking with the tale. show more

  • Reset is remarkably undramatic – to both good and bad effect. show more

  • Reset becomes incrementally less interesting as the performance pulls together; although it’s a visual feast to watch dancers in slow-motion executing seemingly impossible moves, the directors can only go to that well so many times before it gets a bit dull. show more

  • Reset strings together a series of hit-and-miss ideas that never deliver an “aha!” payoff. show more

  • Though the film, which lapses at times into repetitiousness, could have been trimmer and sleeker, even non-aficionados will be swept up by its dynamic look at the creative process. show more

  • Ruinously prioritising chic over content, this is intellectually and stylistically shallow when it should have been dynamic and compelling. show more
