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…
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…
Hasonló a téma de sokkal egyszerűbb mint a Primer. Ennek ellenére kifejezetten jól összerakott de inkább szórakoztató mint elgondolkodtató film.
My second favorite time travel film as of this writing, after Primer. In contrast to Primer's confusing (in a good way) approach, this film depicts a more rigid version. Both are fun to think about.
One of the best time travel movies. So simple and so complex
Ketika kamu mengira kamu sudah tahu bagaimana twistnya, dan kamu terkejut karena masih bisa dikejutkan dengan twist yang lainnya..
Hands down the best time travel film I've ever seen. Handles the subject very seriously and scientifically. I only watched part of the chronological edit, but it helped to understand the film even more. Impressive.
This has a terrific story with lots of intriguing twists and turns and an ominous score.
An extremely well thought out time travel movie with interesting themes of determinism and morality.
While it's obvious that Shane Carruth's Primer was a huge influence in the making of this film, the film stands on its own with its own unique premise. With Primer being a study of newfound power changing people and their own personal relationships, Timecrimes looks at people trying to stop that power from drastically changing their own lives.
The paradoxes that the hero sets out to stop are varied and cleverly laid out, and will often make you go 'oh so that's why that happened' more often than you'd like. The film ramps up the complexity tenfold in the final act, and while it does…
Fun and clever, but not that much.
