Opinion

From Library Staff

A truly original addition to the time-travel canon. These Spaniards put together a really fun movie with a few ethical questions thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Absolutely love this movie. Watch it knowing as little going in as possible. Avoid the trailer at all costs.

Checked this out on a whim (don't let the name or cover fool you) and boy was I pleasantly surprised. I haven't seen a sci-fi thriller like this in quite some time. Highly recommended to fans of the time slip/fate aspect of Donnie Darko and/or thrillers where everything goes horribly wrong (see A Simple Plan).

This is as much a black comedy as a science-fiction story. The directory, Nacho Vigalondo, likes to mix tense situations with dark humor. It's not laugh-out-loud funny, but the Vigalondo uses the time-travel loops to change our perspective on action we've already seen, just as the punch line of a joke can reframe the joke's setup. It's worth checking out Vigalondo's earlier work, the short "7:35am": http://vimeo.com/3628021 .

One of the best time travel films, I've seen. Dark, mysterious, and the traveler only goes back 10 minutes or so!
