- "It’s a story about the invisible fault lines of inequality, the moral compromises demanded by the American Dream, and the very practical ways in which remembering the past can be the only legitimate defense against the social forces that keep trying to repackage it as a vision of the future."
- "Wistfully looking back on the past with a mix of affection for those we have lost, a melancholy yearning for the more tender age of innocence, and anxiety and regret for our trespasses, Gray’s stripped-down drama is a clear-eyed and emotionally intelligent work of great empathy."
- The Playlist
- "ARMAGEDDON TIME, though a finely tuned picture of the past, is also strikingly modern and a painful reminder of how little we have progressed and how quickly people forget. In other words, it’s essential."
- Associated Press
- "An unvarnished family snapshot that traces the seeds from which the artist evolved and the tough lessons about life’s unfairness that helped shape his character, this is a refreshingly understated drama whose gentleness makes it all the more bittersweet."
- The Hollywood Reporter
- "Its tenderness of touch is matched by a remarkable toughness of mind."
- Los Angeles Times
- "ARMAGEDDON TIME is a damning moral drama that is in thoughtful dialogue with complex matters of race and class."
- The New Yorker
- "ARMAGEDDON TIME is above all what it sets out to be: a story about growing up, and all the joy and pain that entails."
- Arizona Republic
- "By letting the picture embody his failures — by turning ARMAGEDDON TIME into a self-aware look at his own limitations — the director makes that necessary connection between then and now, between the characters onscreen and us watching."
