This is a very good film, although I am sorry to say that I didn't find it to be as profound as some of my friends have. Perhaps it is because I never worked in an office and can't relate to the type of work ethic intrinsic to this story. Well, I did work in a bank for almost a year and it drove me crazy, I quit. 3.5*
A masterful interpretation of Emmanuel Carrère's masterpiece, The Adversary, which goes beyond the "official" adaptation. A philosophical and psychological inquiry into the nature of performance, simulation and neoliberalism, Time Out remains one of the greatest films of the decade.
This is the best film of the 21st Century so far. This film will stay with you forever. The truth about human beings and modern values burns through the celluloid and onto your brain. Deeply uncomfortable, unquestionably powerful.
Un acteur étonnant de présence fugitive, dans une oeuvre hautement maîtrisée dont la thématique sera à nouveau abordée par Nicole Garcia, l'année suivante, dans son film : "L'adversaire" moins passionnant ... www.cinefiches.com
A disturbing portrait about the pressure of modern societies over success, either professional or personal. Very well filmed and directed. Amazingly acted, the main actor supports the all film on his shoulders!
