Critic Reviews for The Time Being

  • A brittle, pompous drama about artists and the price they pay for inspiration.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Nemad Cicin-Sain and co-writer Richard N. Gladstein are both guilty of serving up a totally empty, tonally confused meditation on the creative process.

    July 26, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Time Being'' looks sharp, but it's about as dramatically satisfying as watching paint dry.

    July 26, 2013 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • An exhaustingly pretentious heave of artistic self-involvement, "The Time Being" takes an exceptionally handsome journey to nowhere at all.

    July 25, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • 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.

  • Not to be glib, but sitting through the art-centric chamber piece "The Time Being" is truly like watching paint dry.
