Too clever by about nine-tenths.

Los Angeles Times

A work that lacks both a purpose and a strong pulse.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Combustible Celluloid
November 22, 2002
It doesn't help that the director and cinematographer Stephen Kazmierski shoot on grungy video, giving the whole thing a dirty, tasteless feel.

Mattei's underdeveloped effort here is nothing but a convenient conveyor belt of brooding personalities that parade about as if they were coming back from Stock Character camp -- a drowsy drama infatuated by its own pretentious self-examination.

Christopher Null

nothing to say about life, love, or even sex

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

New York Times
October 31, 2002
A listless and desultory affair.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Gene Seymour
October 31, 2002
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

A workshop mentality prevails.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 8, 2002
The parts are better than the whole (bizarre, funny, tragic - like love in New York).
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Absurdities and clichés accumulate like lint in a fat man's navel.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Harvey S. Karten
October 23, 2002
An undistinguished attempt to make a classic theater piece cinematic.

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

November 3, 2002
Will probably be one of those movies barely registering a blip on the radar screen of 2002.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

[I]f you've been to more than one indie flick in your life, chances are you've already seen this kind of thing.

An exercise in cynicism every bit as ugly as the shabby digital photography and muddy sound.
