Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An exhaustingly pretentious heave of artistic self-involvement, "The Time Being" takes an exceptionally handsome journey to nowhere at all.
Rotten: Not to be glib, but sitting through the art-centric chamber piece "The Time Being" is truly like watching paint dry.
Rotten: The characters are as leached of tone as the film's chiaroscuro sets and grisaille paintings, although Langella is certainly game ...
Rotten: While the underdeveloped script - co-written by Richard Gladstein - never earns its sense of self-importance, the visuals are evocative enough to draw us further into the movie's ultimately unsatisfying mysteries.
