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…
Talking about Timecrimes without even thinking of talking about it first so that I can talk about it later might bring some serious consequences.
Well that was cool, inventive, and moody!
I can't believe I've never heard of this before.

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…
Subtle, compelling and creepy as all hell.
This is Jessica from the future. I am writing this review to tell myself to watch this movie. You will thoroughly enjoy it and probably want to travel back in time to watch it again. Just don't talk to strangers and try not to get in any accidents that would require you to wear bandages. Because it would make for a real good scary movie if ya did.
Predictable movies are usually disappointing. This movie is very predictable.
Plots of timetravel´s is always good to look up
The idea is really good, but the way of doing it just fails at some levels.
Also, the actors seemed to be reciting the shopping list sometimes, what was that.
Here's a quick quiz you can take from the comfort of your own computer:
1) Do you currently enjoy time travel movies?
2) Have you previously enjoyed time travel movies?
3) Will you eventually enjoy time travel movies?
If you answered "yes" to one or more of the above questions, you should watch this film. Unless, of course, you've already seen it or plan to watch it at one point, in which case, ignore this advice immediately or ignore this advice once you've seen the film.
What Hollywood (or the Spanish equivalent says it is): Spain's answer to films like Primer, with this heady and thought-provoking indie sci-fi.
What it really is: A film that tries so hard to be clever that it ends up losing heart and, ultimately, meaning.
Independent sci-fi is always a fun genre to look out for. Due to the nature of independent productions and their small budgets, filmmakers who seek to impress with their science fiction movies have to aim for more cerebral thrills instead of eye-melting CGI. Some, like Shane Carruth, have made careers out of mind bending low-budget sci-fis, including Upstream Color and the nearly incomprehensible Primer. Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo's answer to the latter film comes in Timecrimes.…
