Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This long, all-but-wordless piece is good on the endless boredom of unsupervised childhood."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"A melancholic treatise on isolation and our failure to connect with those closest to us."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
"Somewhat ironically for a film about insomnia, 4:30 manages to send its audience to sleep. A lack of plot and an ill-judged belief in its own importance make it a disappointment for Tan fans."
‑ Jamie Russell, Film4
"Royston Tan's film comes alive in the green hued semi-darkness of the flat, using long takes and infinite silences to show two troubled souls connecting through their mutual loneliness."
‑ Matt Bochenski, Little White Lies
"Nicely shot but too wilfully obscure for many tastes, it's to Xiao Li Yuan's credit that he carries a movie whose unrequited love theme doesn't merit this length."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"With this production (a natural progression from his previous work, notably 15) director Royston Tan most assuredly moves from the category of filmmaker to artist."
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
