Los Cronocrimines

(aka Time Crimes, 2008)

How can a decent Sci-Fi film be made with no budget? I might not have thought of the answer to that puzzling question until I saw this film, but the writer/director of Time Crimes (Nacho Vigolando, who also plays a supporting acting role) demonstrated quite ingeniously that it is possible, given adherence to the following guidelines:

1. Locate the entire story in the present, in some everyday setting.

2. Create the sci-fi element by having the main character travel back only a few minutes in time, thus creating a situation where two of him (or more) have to co-exist in the present day.

3. Make the time-travel apparatus low-tech and mostly off camera. Keep the scientific explanations to a minimum, forcing the audience to accept the simple fact of time travel, rather than to quibble about the method.

In the case of this particular Spanish film, "Hector from now" co-exists with "Hector from an hour in the future" and then later with still another Hector who is just a few more minutes out of synch. The explanation is a long story, not really worth detailing. If you want a complete plot summary, there is a detailed one at IMDb. If you are intrigued by the concept, you're better off not reading that plot summary. In fact, the little I told you is already too much. It would be ideal to watch this movie without knowing it is a time-travel mystery, but the title sort of spoils that from the get-go. The satisfaction you will derive from watching this film is based upon the fact that everything on screen seems utterly baffling until the layers of the onion are pulled back, at which point the little pieces seem to fit together, and you are permitted the pleasure of a hearty "Aha!" The explanation may not really make perfect sense, but it makes as much sense as anything is ever going to make in a time-travel movie. The point is that the author does offer an explanation, and it's fun to see how he gets there.

There have been discussions about remaking the film in English, presumably with some kind of reasonable budget. Timothy Sexton (Children of Men) had been enlisted to script it, and the rumor mill had seated either David Cronenberg or George Romero in the director's chair. I'm not sure how concrete the remake plans were, but the talk was really heating up about a year ago, and then cooled off. I have not heard much about it lately, and I'm not sure what the current status is. IMDb lists it as a 2011 film in development, whatever that means.

The very good news: Barbara Goenaga got stark naked in this version. Here are some 1280x720 film clips.


  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Fifteen years have passed since Dream Lover, and Amick still looks great. She didn't do any nude scenes on Californication last year, but her face looked youthful and she filled out a bikini magnificently.







A mixed bag today.

Many, many pics of Anna Friel, since she's the hot topic this week. Lately, she was in Land of the Lost, and did a topless spread in Vanity Fair. In yesterday's page she was exposed in Watermelon (2003). Tomorrow, we will see her nude scenes in Bathory (2008). These topless pics are nearly a decade old. You probably already have the ones of her in the yellow bikini if you're a long-time reader, since they are in her Encyclopedia entry. The ones in the black bikini, however, are new and/or upgraded.

A wardrobe malfunction from AnnaLynne McCord. (Not enough of one.)
