time out

Time Out is a terrific movie that I can't exactly recommend. It's points of interest seem simultaneously universal and specific; I could imagine someone finding the film dreary and boring, but I also know that I identified strongly with the main character, and think if you have empathy for the time-honored "plight of post-modern man" and can withstand a French movie that takes its time getting to where it's going, you will find Time Out rewarding, if also depressing. While most of the reviews seem perfectly willing to give away plot details that don't surface in the movie for quite awhile, I'm not going to do that. What I will do is cite what was said about the film when it was given the FIPRESCI Award (whatever that is), because it tells what the movie is about without revealing the plot: "a powerful, visually impressive portrayal of existential anguish and alienation in a corporate society governed by competition, status and success." If that sounds like your cup of tea, you might, like me, give Time Out a rating of 10 on a scale of 10.
