What are critics saying?


The Hollywood Reporter by

The movie is, arguably, too long and overladen with ideas. Klotz and Perceval are particularly keen on nailing the use and abuse of language in formatting human behavior.


Chicago Reader by J.R. Jones

Director Nicolas Klotz paces his mystery plot so luxuriously that it feels like a ride in a company limo, though his ultimate thesis, that corporate culture is inherently fascist, hardly seems worth the trip. The saving grace is Amalric, who looks so sharp in a tailored suit that he can't sense himself rotting from within.


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

A chilling corporate thriller with an intriguing mystery on the surface and a deeply troubling idea at its dark core.


Variety by Lisa Nesselson

Both pertinent and discomfiting, this sober, well-cast drama remains quietly riveting, despite its 140-minute running time.


The New York Times by Manohla Dargis

The rather lost-looking Mr. Amalric, most recently seen on screens giving his left eyeball a furious workout in “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” maintains a suitably funereal mien throughout.


The A.V. Club by Noel Murray

Amalric gives another in a recent string of riveting performances, and Klotz gets a lot of play out of the ironic distance between musical expression and corporate rigor.
