Ok, so I watched this film Primer a while ago and...well....WTF?
When I first saw it made no sense at all. Since then I have watched it a few more times and poked around the internet and am finally sort of understanding.
For those who don't know, Primer is a 2004 film about time travel. It was written, directed, and just about everything else was done by Shane Carruth, a mathematician.
The plot deals with a pair of semi-professional inventors who accidentally invent a time machine of sorts, and all the confusing paradoxes that arise. Seeing as it was written by a mathematician and not a writer, the film is hard to follow and the time travel involved is not your classic Dr.Who simple time travel, but an insanely complex but more realistic time travel. The plot is very original, and effectively paints a picture of what would actually happen if someone were to invent time travel, that is if you can understand it.
Amazingly the film only cost $7,000 to make, but made over $424,000 quite a success i think.
So, who else has seen this, and did you understand it?
