The film possesses an excellent sense of craft with its moody cinematography and dynamic editing and shots, it is often shot like a moody, kinetic thriller, which adds to the comedy of the situation. For the main character, her situation feels very much like a life-or-death situation, and each aberration from her usual routine harbors a sense of danger.

“Always on Time” captures the absurdities of modern life particularly with how we relate to time, deadlines and the way our inner experience is shaped by these expectations. Its final shots should prove satisfying to anyone who’s labored under a tight deadline or raced against the tyranny of someone else’s timetable."
