12A - 77mins - Drama/Thriller/Sci-Fi - 19th August 2005     Well I would be lying if I said that my brain didn't hurt slightly after watching this as it's definitely a bit of a thinker with quite a bit of technical 'mumbo-jumbo' that needs to be listened to in order to find the story behind it. I think it could quite nicely summed up by the fact that if you noted and listened to every detail they mention then you could be quite confident in knocking up your own …

is certainly one of the more challenging movies I've seen in a while. Shane Carruth, the director and one of the main actors, gets a lot right, particularly the atmospherics and dialogue. Unfortunately, the film almost seems too focused on these aspects, but leaves viewers confused about the plot. It's an odd film, but one definitely worth checking out if you like thoughtful, cerebral sci-fi.      Oddly enough, for a sci-fi movie about time travel, Primer's treatment …

A small group of engineers spent their nights and weekends making this exciting and low key science fiction thriller about a small group of engineers who spend their nights and weekends trying to create something marketable, and create something far more exciting and dangerous than they could have anticipated. With it, they open Pandora's box and a metaphysical can of worms.     What I like the most about the film is what will likely turn some viewers off: its elliptical and …

A strange, creative little film, this. One that manages to make visual the chaos of quantum physics in the form of human permutations of the disorder and bizarre combination of marvel and fear that confront the mind upon a moment of discovery of a new fact/concept. This is a film that should be viewed by an audience prepared to engage those parts of the brain not usually readily accessible, but available cellules of new thought chambers that need and should be challenged if we are to continue to …

My husband is a HUGE fan of time travel movies, and when he heard about a film called Primer winning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, he wanted me to keep an eye out for it to add to our online rental queue.    There's a whole lot of talking in the first 15 minutes or so. It's kind of aggravating because you can't hear what they're saying because they're speaking over each other.
