Los Cronocrímenes

English Title: Timecrimes
Director: Nacho Vigalondo
Country: Spain

When Héctor (Karra Elejalde) sees a naked woman in the woods behinds his house, he goes to investigate, leading him to accidentally travel back in time to earlier in the afternoon.

I don't really want to say too much more about this movie, as it would spoil things, but I quite liked it. It's a time travel movie that's not very confusing at all, which is a bit of a double-edged sword; it's good that it can be understood, but it also leaves you a bit cheated if you're a fan of these types of movies because you kind of want a bit of mystery left, and there is none. In fact, the movie is pretty predictable for the most part. That aside, I was entertained by it, which is what counts.

This is a good movie, but not a great one. It's entertaining enough to make it worth the price of admission, so I see no reservations in recommending it, especially for sci-fi fans.
