PRIMER
2004, erbp, 77 min, USA, Dir: Shane Carruth

This micro-budget sci-fi film, one of the most thought-provoking in recent memory, won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. Engineers tinkering in a garage invent a device that opens up time-travel possibilities; their attempts to exploit the discovery quickly spiral out of control. “The experience of watching PRIMER is so intensely pleasurable that you’ll want to see it several times, not so much to figure it out (that’s a fringe benefit) as to revel in its striking composition and wry sense of humor.” - Mike D’Angelo, Esquire
