Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
A trip back in time from the present to...
A man accidentally gets into a time machine and travels back in time nearly an hour. Finding himself will be the first of a series of disasters of unforeseeable consequences.
Near perfect. One of the best time-travel films I've seen, in part because of the juxtaposition of its intricate script & the simplicity of its setting. You would never guess that traveling only mere hours back in time would serve for such a compelling narrative, but "Timecrimes" pulls it off with brilliant pacing and a plot woven with intelligent twists, not ones that pander to its audience or insult their intelligence. Karra Elejalde [Hector] delivers a tremendously compelling lead performance[s], and is anchored by a keen supporting role from the film's director Nacho Vigalondo as a scientist in the wrong place at the wrong time[s]. For my money, I have trouble deciding which low-budget time-travel feature is better, "Timecrimes" or "Primer". And that is high praise in and of itself.
Timecrimes brings to the table the well-worn genre of the time travel enigma in such an engaging, refreshing and minimalistic fashion that I was riveted throughout the experience. The plot is woven with great intricacy and Nacho Vigalondo does a great job in putting together the pieces of the puzzle in such a manner that the level of intrigue never diminishes instead it is always on rise and is left on a high in the end. The film does itself some great good by not explaining things too much as to leave the audiences with nothing to chew on. The relatively open ending and the confusion that the lead character has with the concept makes the film more accessible…
Well that was cool, inventive, and moody!
I can't believe I've never heard of this before.
All I want is a room with a view
A sight worth seeing, a vision of you
All I want is a room with view, oh-oh…
All I want though... Is someone to explain to me WTF just went on there? All those Hectors running around, all hell bent on ending it all for themselves.
I was with it for a while, I was keeping track and then it just unravelled on me towards the finale.
The film looked good, and the costume design of the attacker character was great.
There are two ways to look at this film however, a:) it’s misogynistic or b) it features a sweet rack and loads of unnecessary nudity (as my friend put it…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

This is ScreeningNotes 2. I've come back from the future to warn you that ScreeningNotes 1 is totally going to spoil this movie for you. For anyone who hasn't seen the movie and clicked past the warning anyway, here's a spoiler-free review: if you liked the lo-fi time travel aesthetic of Primer then go watch this. It's good, I promise. Now get out of here before it's too late.
I'm no good at putting together complex storylines. So for me at least, one of the most important things about a movie like this is that, whether it's easy to follow or not, watching the puzzle pieces fall into place ought to…
In my last review of this fantastic timetravel mindbender I tried to unravel the mysteries and the holes of it's plot. By now that is one of my least favourite reviews by myself on here because I think I might have been wrong, I honestly don't know anymore. You can't even comprehend this movie on your first watch and I'm only slowly starting to think I might have a grip on everything going on.
Anyways, "Timecrimes" is a fantastic low budget movie from Spain where a man accidentally travels back in time for one hour and slowly realizes that he is caught up what can only be described as a "Butterfly Effect" series of events. The actors do a fantastic…
Busca, busca en thriller español.
Ese Nacho Vigalondo, o lo amas o lo odias. Actualmente estoy en 50/50, porque me falta ver unas películas más para formar una opinión. Basado en 4, solamente 2 me han gustado (Timecrimes y Extraterrestrial) y las otras 2 pues meh (Open Windows y su segmento en ABC's Of Death).
Desde que salió en el 2007 muchas personas me habían recomendado ver esta película: 'Ve Timecrimes, seguro te va gustar' decían, y pues claro, me conocen bien, un thriller de bajo presupuesto con tema del viaje en el tiempo es un must watch para mí.
Para ser la ópera prima del director es un excelente ejemplo de que con una buena historia contada de una manera ingeniosa puedes atrapar al espectador durante 88 minutos. Además ya tengo un nuevo disfraz para Halloween.
I might need Steven Hawkins to figure this one out! Interesting and deftly done sci-fi time travel film.
mi aspettavo una trama più complessa, invece pare tratto da un racconto di SF anni '50 e il protagonista si comporta da personaggio di fumetto. E' comunque un bellissimo prodotto coerente e senza grosse pretese.
Where's TimeCop when you need him?!
"Los cronocrimenes" constitutes a welcome addition in the time-travel/time loop theme. An interesting thriller with a comedy twist, shot on practically nothing, no special effects whatsoever, manages to appear original by putting a regular middle-aged ,almost pensioner, civilian in the front seat rather than an expert scientist, a super soldier, or a cop as it usually happens in the films of this kind.
I seriously doubt whether the script is chronologically pinpointed to the last detail, so the consistency theorists among its viewers may certainly find some holes in the time-space continuum and the characters' motives. This definitely detracts the film a considerable amount of its charm, but otherwise this an interesting endeavour which the genre lovers may appreciate.
One of the better time travel movies I've seen. The biggest downside is that you'll have to read.
This was a very cool time travel film that kept me guessing right until the end. It's extremely well done and I don't believe that I noticed any plot holes which are usually prevalent in a film like this.
One of the tightest time travel plots ever.
