  1. It's amazing to see a film so brazenly experimental, so committed to reflecting on the circumstances and techniques of its making, that is at the same time so intent upon delivering old-fashioned cinematic pleasures like humor and pathos, character and plot.
  2. A clever way of providing crucial layering and heightening a hip, satirical take on bad old Hollywood ways.

    A fascinating combination of dare, stunt and genuine artistic risk -- often disorganized, but never less than entertaining.
  4. It induces a serious case of sensory overload that left me drained and edgy.

    I suspect that Time Code was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch.

    Even with sex, drugs, hip-hop and a murder, these four stories are dull, dull, dull, dull.

    Rather strikingly unusual and daring. The most compelling scenes by far are the ones with Salma Hayak. It's an interesting experiment, Rather strikingly unusual and daring. The most compelling scenes by far are the ones with Salma Hayak. It's an interesting experiment, it doesn't always work but I admire the effort. Collapse
