Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even if it lacks the emotional power of Manuel, Time Regained is a lot closer to Ruiz's best work than it is to his worst."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"A crashing bore."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"A film that captures the richness of Proust's writing and the peculiarity of his sensibility through an array of unlikely imagery and staging techniques."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
"In a Ruiz film one must expect a work that is obscure and mysterious."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The stream-of-consciousness structure effectively captures a mind lost in thought; what it doesn't effectively create, however, is drama."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Moody, opulent, and just decadent enough, Ruiz's film is elegant all over and perverse around the edges, just as it should be."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"The best way to experience Time Regained is to let each vignette become an oar for rowing across the sea of Proust's memories."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"a beautiful, moody dream-piece"
‑ Arthur Lazere, culturevulture.net
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Inventive and astounding."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Ruiz gracefully weaves through flashbacks triggered by sights, sounds, and thoughts, effortlessly ricocheting from remembrance to remembrance."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
