Congratulations to Nacho Vigalondo (view blog) for his film “Timecrimes” winning best picture at Fantastic Fest this year.

Timecrimes” aka “Los Cronocrimenes” was my second favorite film of Fantastic Fest 2007 (only behind P.T. Anderson’sThere Will Be Blood“). “Timecrimes” is a soaring debut and really puts Mr. Vigalondo on the map as a fresh new voice in cinema to keep a close eye on in the years ahead. Time travel through the course of this films hits on the theme if man can truly escape his fate and if some things are just inevitable regardless how hard we try to avoid them. Mr. Vigalondo does a hell of a lot with very little. Everything about the film feels rich and absorbing. I can’t wait to see it again in Sitges at the Melia! If you like films that deal with fate, time travel or are as rich as “Usual Suspects” or “Memento” then make sure you see this film when it comes out!

Of the Fantastic Fest 2007 karaoke singers Nacho was rated number one aka the very damn best! Followed by Juan Antonio Bayona and then Zack Carlson.

Pictures in the gallery do include Nacho karaoke-ing down the house with an electric rendition of “Tainted Love.”
