More Info:
  • Merle Bertrand

    When done well, they are scintillating cinematic brain teasers, and Timecrimes is one of the best time travel films to come along in, er, quite some time.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Timecrimes is a tremendously entertaining bit of Kafka that whirlpools down into "The Twilight Zone."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Timecrimes doesn't end as well as it begins. Then again, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo deliberately fudges the beginning and endpoints of his premise, which involves one of those nutty causal loops so dear to writers and consumers of science fiction.

  • V.A. Musetto

    According to rumors swirling on the Internet, an English-language remake is already in the works, possibly directed by David Cronenberg.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    Overall, it's a nice melding of sci-fi and a crime story.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Vigalondo is only partially capable of building suspense (the film's latter stages contain one knot too many); his achievement owes more to his imagination than his pop craftsmanship.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Yet while it isn't that hard to stay a step or two ahead of Timecrimes, the movie is still a nifty little genre piece, an old-fashioned science-fiction mind-game with a healthy dollop of "Oh, the irony."

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Neil Young

    As a whole, the picture is, frustratingly, always much more about structure than substance.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    The Spanish writer and director Nacho Vigalondo has audacity to spare. Constructing a looping, economical plot and directing like a fire marshal in a flaming building, he conjures urgency and disorientation from the thinnest of air.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Holland

    Timecrimes welds a B-movie plotline to precision-engineered writing and a down-to-earth style; add an engagingly sloppy, nonplussed hero, who remains unfazed by the time-bending scrape in which he finds himself, and the result is memorably offbeat.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Vigalondo explores it (time travel) just enough to keep this thriller moving, and Karra Elejalde is entirely convincing as the unwilling time traveler, who finds himself threatened by not only his past self but his future one as well.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    There's a dark and demented little psychodrama of self-inflicted madness beneath the narrative contrivances. Vigalondo's direction makes it work more like a waking nightmare than a genuine experience, and he gives it the quality of madness.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Jim Ridley

    Modestly diverting.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Only half as clever as it thinks and even less entertaining.
