Try Primer


Before I get to writing the final piece of 12 Brothers - The Lryics, I thought I would check in with a movie rental suggestion. Go pick up Primer from your local Blockbuster. One of the best science fiction movies I've seen in a long time. If you can, don't read anything about it before watching it. Just go in blind.

To be honest, my mind is still in shambles trying to figure out exactly what happened in this movie. I'm very much lost and confused. And I'm OK with that. I'll definitely need to see it a second time (and a third, and a ...). Maybe one day I'll figure it all out.

The acting is admittedly average at best. The direction and story make up for it, though, in a huge way. It was just so easy to get engrossed in this thing. I'd be interested to hear everyone else's opinions on this.

So many people have suggested this movie to me. Now that Jeremy's raving about it, I'll have to really see it.

Is this the recent Sundance hit that only cost $7,000 to make? Or have I been sniffing too many magic markers again?

Yes ... and yes.

I remember seeing the poster at Valley Art theater, maybe as far back as the Thriller challenge. Looked very interesting, I'll try to check it out.

And as a wonderful ode to this film, notice how some of the comments on this post were made prior to the blog entry even being posted. Eerie!
