I'm sure the filmmakers found this a remarkable and novel concept, but anybody who has ever seen an independent film can report that it is instead a cheap cliché.

The overall fabric is hypnotic, and Mr. Mattei fosters moments of spontaneous intimacy.

Too clever by about nine-tenths.

Despite impeccable acting ... and a script that takes some rather unexpected (even, at times, preposterous) turns, Love is just too, too precious in the end.

The problems of the people in Love in the Time of Money are hardly specific to their era. They just have problems, which are neither original nor are presented in convincing way.

Top Critic

Unfortunately, a cast of competent performers from movies, television and the theater are cast adrift in various New York City locations with no unifying rhythm or visual style.

Audience Reviews for Love in the Time of Money


kind of pointless jumble of affairs. a little too "indie" for me

"Love in the Time of Money" is not the first updating of "La Ronde" to the present day in New York City and it probably won't be the last, either. This particular group of linked encounters starts with Greta(Vera Farmiga) on her first night as a prostitute and hopefully her last, considering how badly her meeting with her first customer, Eddie(Domenick Lombardozzi, with hair), goes. After which, Eddie goes back to his job as a plumber and uptown where he does some work for Ellen(Jill Hennessy).

Overall, "Love in the Time of Money" is inconsistent, with a couple of cheap shots at the modern art world. The best part features Steve Buscemi and Rosario Dawson which is a combination that should not click in any possible universe. But here they have a spark between them which goes down to their skill as actors. On the minus side, any segment involving Adrian Grenier is dead on arrival.

A decent low budget Indie. Any movie that shows Rosario Dawson undressing can't be bad. I like how NYC is also a character. Good script. Good acting. Our lives are contingent.
