This is the gold standard of all independent, low-budget movies about time travel. Shane Carruth (who wrote, directed, edited, scored, produced, and co-stars) famously spent just $7,000 making his mind-bending tale of two guys who accidentally invent a time machine. But Primer is so much more than something that can be reduced to “big ideas on a tiny budget.” As the movie progresses, the invention lurches from amazing discovery to destructive force, as timelines overlap and intersect and a wedge forms between the two friends. It gets confusing as hell, for both the audience and the characters—but you never lose the sense that Carruth knew exactly what wanted to do, every step of the way.
