Primer

primer screen capI think I downloaded Primer (torrent) after someone suggested it as a Sci-Fi movie that doesn’t suck. It won the grand jury prize at Sundance in 2004. Here’s my plot summary: This is a time-travel movie; prepare to be screwed with. I really liked this movie and they did a great job with a $7,000 budget. In the third act I was bothered because it seemed to confuse obfuscation with cleverness. I wished less time had been spent on electro-gibberish dialog at the beginning of the movie and more time spent on the resolution. I encourage you to see this movie (it comes out on DVD on Tuesday), but be prepared for a Mullholland Dr. level of bewilderment.
