  • Recoing gives a performance that won't soon be forgotten. Neither will Time Out. It's a great movie. show more

  • Vincent is played masterfully by Aurelien Recoing, who gives him a sort of as-if anomie; this haunted hero is so detached that he may not realize he has no real life to be detached from.

  • This is a documentarylike film about a man who creates a castle in the air and then moves right in, the "Harold and the Purple Crayon" of the workplace. show more
