Review: Time Crimes

Time travel is a creativity trap. It often simply doesn't make sense and is frustrating for the audience. Movies specifically about time travel are even harder to pull off. Exploring the consequence of time travel isn't a new idea in science fiction.

Is there anything original left to say? Maybe not. But
Time Crimes (Los Cronocrímenes) sure says it well. I was pleasantly surprised by this film. It was smart, and unexpected.

I don't want to give away anything about the plot, but will say that if you enjoy sci-fi, or like thinking about causality and determinism, then this is one movie worth checking out.
