This gimmicky experimental film from Mike Figgis ("Leaving Las Vegas") isn't worth the film it's on...

As gimmicky as that sounds, what's most amazing about the enterprise is how well it works.

There's a lot to see in Timecode. Unfortunately, there's not a lot that's interesting.

Apart from its technological originality, Time Code is almost completely uninteresting.

One can achieve almost the same effect any afternoon at your local Sears store by turning 4 adjoining television sets on 4 different soap operas.

Induces a serious case of sensory overload that left me drained and edgy.

For those who just want a good story and to heck with exploring brave new worlds of cinema, Time Code may seem like Time Cod-liver Oil.

With Time Code, there is always a danger that you are watching the wrong corner.

Time Code isn't so much a movie as an experiment in digital filmmaking, and one likely to induce nausea or migraines in the viewer.
