Huge Thums Up for Timecrimes ["Los Cronocrímenes"]
We've all seen films about time travel. We've all seen films about crimes committed, and attempts to solve or stop them, while folks whisked about time.
It's a thriller, it's funny, and it's thoughtful. It's also clever without being cute. I really dug it.
No big mystery. Just a guy who sees something, and goes to investigate [the naked broad he's investigating might explain that he's not looking for time travel and intricacy.
My web-browsing tells me that it's leaving DC's E Street Cinema on Thursday, and won't be back. Get out there and see it. That is, if you don't want a movie that'll "change your life," but want something small and fun and interesting, go! GO. Go . . . . .
If you're in New York, maybe it's on its way there.
