About the Movie
Winner of the Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize and Alfred P. Sloan Award, Primer tells the story of two small time engineers that trip upon an invention that far surpasses their aspirations. "An ingenious movie about the perils of ingenuity. Invigorating. Like 'Pi' or 'Memento', 'Primer' is the kind of movie likely to inspire both imitators and cultists. Carruth has invented something fascinating." (A.O Scott, The New York Times)

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Incredibly confusing but oddly compelling.
Rotten: It's dense, and in a way that doesn't begin to reward the effort required to untie it.
Fresh: It is maddening, fascinating and completely successful.
Fresh: Scary, puzzling, and different.
My brain hurts.
Once I understood the movie, it was really good. This movie just doesn’t make anything really…clear. I had to look up the plot on Wikipedia and explain the the plot to my mother and sister for 30 minutes. This movie is also pretty slow and boring. Don’t watch if you don’t want to think.
Your mind will bend.
Your mind will shake.
Your mind may break...
Cool movie. Have to really pay attention but If you like a movie with a good story, you will like this one. The two main actors were really good!
I totally recommend this movie... if you don't like it, i'll buy you popcorn!
