An intriguing, often very entertaining thriller with deliciously sexy, satirical and melodramatic flourishes.

Some movies become milestones on the basis of quality, others, for being where they are when they are. Mike Figgis' Time Code is assured of qualifying in the second category.
January 1, 2000
It will be argued that Time Code is more of a techno-stunt than a dramatic experience, but the stories turn out to be surprisingly affecting.
January 1, 2000
Time Code might be the year's most pretentious movie, but it's also the most fascinating and audacious.
January 1, 2000
Surprisingly breezy to watch, because Figgis smashingly manipulates sound to focus our attention from one place to another.
January 1, 2000
Figgis has devised a genuinely novel way to shoot and experience a feature-length film.
January 1, 2000
Apart from its technological originality, Time Code is almost completely uninteresting.
January 1, 2000
The story is not the thing in Time Code. It's the way in which it is told that makes this one so intriguing.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
As gimmicky as that sounds, what's most amazing about the enterprise is how well it works.
January 1, 2000
Worth seeing for the way Mr. Figgis ... skewers the pretentiousness of conventional production and makes it (at least for a time) mesmerizing if not very human.
January 1, 2000
Turns out to be more ambitious than it is satisfying.
January 1, 2000
Time Code seems to be one of those instant cult movies. Non-cult-members are likely to end up with confusion and possible eye strain.
January 1, 2000
I recommend the film.
January 1, 2000
Stands as a rare feat of technology made human.
January 1, 2000
The screen is filled by 28 actors, some familiar and some not, but all of them effective.
January 1, 2000
A triumph of style and technological innovation, but a failure in terms of storytelling.
January 1, 2000
Often disorganized, but never less than entertaining.
