The modest satisfactions of Timecrimes come down to a protagonist divided against himself.

Hector's insane time-travel journey is an excellent example of high-concept sci-fi.

The key here is to keep things moving without letting the logical (or illogical) complications weigh down the action, and [director] Vigalondo does this well.

Timecrimes is like a temporal chess game with nudity, voyeurism and violence, which makes it more boring than most chess games but less boring than a lot of movies.

Watching "Timecrimes" is like stumbling in a pitch-black haunted house. Hitting walls where paths should be is fun, and time-travel tropes of choice versus fate are inventively goosed. Even with five minutes left, it could conclude in any number of ways.

The idea isn't bad, and Vigalondo makes the pretzel logic of the situation lucid, but he doesn't have the chops to give the tale the suspense and humor it needs.

A high-octane time travel thriller that wastes no time in plunging you right into the drama. While not something I will rush to see again, the original subject… More
