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.

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.

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

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.

A work that lacks both a purpose and a strong pulse.

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.

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

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