Total Score :
Length: 2hr 01min
David Fear, Time Out New York (Tue, Nov. 26)
The director goes after both old-media exploitation and new-media omnipresence, and the result is less than cutting.
Nick Schager, Village Voice (Tue, Nov. 26)
Caught in the Web finds director Chen Kaige vainly stumbling about in search of a tone or point.
Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve (Tue, Nov. 26)
Caught In The Web has just a little too much in common with the shallow, slick world it's ostensibly critiquing.
David Lee Dallas, Slant Magazine (Tue, Nov. 26)
