Rolling Stone
Within its small, darkly funny range, Trust is an exceptional film that stays alert to the mysteries of love.

The New York Times
Though Mr. Hartley's films are richly detailed, there are no frills or grace notes. Such work risks being too blunt, but Trust comes through.
75
Trust is stylishly photographed and crammed with quirky, offbeat incidents and dialogue.

Variety
Long Island filmaker Hal Hartley progresses from his debut feature, The Unbelievable Truth to this bleak, off-center comedy about dysfunctional families in working class suburbia.

Washington Post
He's made two features, "The Unbelievable Truth" and now Trust, and both are cool, strikingly original case studies of middle-class anomie.

Trust is always interesting. And always interesting, as someone once said, is always good.

There's a serious teen angst movie somewhere in all this as well as an unflinching look at suburbia.

Time
Another fond sketch of losers from the down-scale version of Woody Allen.

Hal Hartley is on his way to creating a distinctive film world, and although Trust is not a successful film, you can see his vision at work, and it's intriguing.
50
Trust, the cult-movie view turns precious and smug.
