    You can count on the fingers of one hand the number of works in any given year to which one is moved to apply the word ''masterpiece.'' Raul Ruiz's Time Regained is one of them.
  2. Densely layered, demanding and beautiful, Ruiz has found the perfect venue for his passions and created the most cinematically breathtaking film of the new millennium.

    A gorgeous dreamscape of a movie...one of the most exhilarating experiences of pure cinema that will be offered this year.

    The daring of the conception is matched only by the brilliance of the execution.
  5. A long sit for those unfamiliar with Proust's literary quest and output, but the view is sensational.

    Struggles under the burden of adapting such rarefied material.
  7. Despite its actors, its lush photography and its obvious seriousness of purpose, is as close to a form of torture as any film ever devised. I can't think of any individuals I dislike so much as to force them to see this picture.
