There has been a string of ensemble cast romances recently ... but Peter Mattei's Love in the Time of Money sets itself apart by forming a chain of relationships that come full circle to end on a positive (if tragic) note.

Despite a blue-chip cast and a provocative title, writer-director Peter Mattei's first feature microwaves dull leftover romantic motifs basted in faux-contemporary gravy.
| Original Score: 2/4
October 31, 2002
Anemic chronicle of money grubbing New Yorkers and their serial loveless hook ups.

The film ultimately offers nothing more than people in an urban jungle needing other people to survive...

Mattei is tiresomely grave and long-winded, as if circularity itself indicated profundity.

A very slow, uneventful ride around a pretty tattered old carousel.

Mattei so completely loses himself to the film's circular structure to ever offer any insightful discourse on, well, Love in the Time of Money.

More whiny downer than corruscating commentary.

The film was immensely enjoyable thanks to great performances by both Steve Buscemi and Rosario Dawson...

The parts are better than the whole (bizarre, funny, tragic - like love in New York).

Despite the evocative aesthetics evincing the hollow state of modern love life, the film never percolates beyond a monotonous whine.
