Critics reviews

Part of what for me makes Time Limit more provocative is the extent to which it challenges the audience’s view of what heroism is, with a well-calibrated surprise ending that overturns many of our initial assumptions. The Rack also challenges some of our assumptions, to be sure, but does so a good deal more tentatively and uncertainly.
