Review byMatthew Turner18/10/2000

Be warned – do not see this film with a hangover!

You’re going to need all your functions in tip top working order to avoid sensory overload when trying to take in all of Timecode’s confusing, but interesting character plots.

The film’s style isn’t exactly conducive to lazy viewing either. With the screen split into four and the various characters scenes continuously filmed, you follow the storyline through the dialogue which moves from box to box - bewildering at worst, quite brilliant at best.

Much excitement from the males in the audience as lesbian businesswoman plants a bug on her starlet girlfriend Salma Hayek in an attempt to catch her cheating.

All in all the film holds lots of coke, lots of ‘find myself’ therapy, agonised relationships, earthquakes and general skull duggery. The characters do finally merge in a groundbreaking finale.

Worth watching a couple of times just so you can pick up on the bits you missed the first time round!
