Timecrimes (Spanish: Los Cronocrímenes) 2007 time travel movie in Spanish with English subtitles was on Film 4 last week. Wiki has it written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo with Karra Elejalde, Bárbara Goenaga and Candela Fernández.

I enjoyed the last Spanish SF I readso I thought this worth movie trying and turns out to be a sort of "By his Bootstraps" set 1hour into the past rather than 30K years ahead. I quite enjoyed it though I didn't draw out the temporal map to check its logic.

Our protagonist spies a naked girl, tries to see more and finds himself stabbed and chased by a masked man. The chase takes him into a lab where he hides in a machine, He emerges an hour in earlier and hurts his head trying to go home. He bandages his whole head and soon he's chasing his earlier/later self and ...

Its quite pure SF as movies go. Aside from the naked girl it doesn't make any concessions to audiences. I doubt it would bring big crowds to a multiplex.

Its not Sci Fi but sorry I couldn't resist that subject title.
