5.0 out of 5 stars The Search for Meaning in Ordinary Life Jan. 31 2003
By Tom Shi
Format:DVD
Vincent is an average working stiff family man who suddenly lose his job. Finding another job is not really the problem, something deeper than unemployment is troubling this man. His old job so consumes him, yet at the same time is so meaningless to him, that he panicks and become slightly unhinged. He doesn't tell his family, and pretend to be still working, spending his days driving around the country side, sitting in parks. Gradually, he descend into moral seediness.
What's disturbing is that this guy has a very loving family and good, decent friends. It's the man's relationship with his work that's troubling. The movie didn't really come together for me until the very last shot, where the themes of the movie that bubbled under the surface rise up in the subtle emotions of his face as a quiet trap close over him.
Some people may say, "Well, he is bored with his job, so what? Many of us are!" But I think that's merely the surface of what he is going through. He is a lost man desperately searching for meaning and passion in life. In that aspect, his struggles are like many of our daily struggles amplified, and deserve our sympathy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A disturbingly chilling and satisfying film. Jan. 29 2003
Format:DVD
My girlfriend and I went to go see this movie a bit ago at an International Film Festival here in Minneapolis, not knowing what the movie was about, or who was in it. Although she hated, I absolutely loved it! The story revolves around a man, Vincent, who loses his job and doesn't have the courage to tell his family. To cover for his failure, he concocts an outrageous story about a new job he has gotten for the United Nations, and as the film progresses, we watch as his life goes into a downward spiral. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this film is the fact that it is truly realistic, both in dealing with the idea of failure and the idea of hopelessness. It's painful to watch, as Vincent wastes away his days doing nothing, while calling his wife to tell her that work is going great, yet at the same time, we can identify with his situation. Pride is one of the greatest human flaws, and the film expertly examines it. Overall, a great film, one that I strongly recommend. Action fans, though, will be very disappointed, as it is truly a character examination piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTERPIECE Feb. 8 2003
By 24fps
Format:DVD
Timeout contains many layers of complex human elements which combined together make a very haunting and bleak film.The film is about a man who loses his job and cannot bring himself to reveal this to his family.He goes out everyday as if he still has a job and wanders around office buildings,hotels,gets into some illegal business and lies to his family about having a prestigious job in the U.N.
The setting is a gray country side in the winter,the shots of the highway covered in snow twist my stomach in a feeling of discomfort.You can really sense the bleak and depressing mood of this film just from watching the the faces on the screen and looking at the cold landscapes which are very pronounced throughout the film.
Some may find the film boring,some may find it too depressing and some will love it.I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, Excellent Movie Feb. 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw "Time Out" while I was out of work. It brought up a lot of uncomfortable feelings and issues. Especially the pride issue, of how you feel when you don't have a job to identify with. The movie is based on a real story, which is even more amazing and sad than the movie.
