David Stratton of Variety wrote: "The camera lingers on various characters, including a youth played by the director, who just sit or stand about, looking miserable. Nothing much happens. ... Whatever Bartas was trying to communicate in The Corridor is difficult to determine, and maybe only the initiated can work it out."[1]
