Movie Review : Primer

Primer (2004)

Seth Mason and I were bored one night and decided that we would go see a movie. We looked in the paper and couldn’t find one movie that we both wanted to see, and one that was playing late. I knew nothing about the movie, which i absolutely love. Seth saw the poster and was also intruiged by just the poster.

I don’t normally like time travel movies, but this was no normal time travel movie. And this movie wasn’t like any other movie i haven’t seen in my life. This movie starts off with four guys who are working hard in what seems to be one of there houses. They start to have a conversation and you generally don’t understand a word that they are saying. There voices are a little muffled and you hope that it gets better as the movie goes along. Soon they get into a little tiff about what project they should work on next. The two main guys decided on non working on what the other guys wanted to do and work on there own thing.

We don’t know exactly what they were making at all. I can only assume that they were working on error checking devices for corporations. Only because thats the plot summary on imdb. But they soon make this device that they don’t really understand how it came to be like that.

The sound never gets any better than it did in that first scene. I do believe that they did that on purpose, so you don’t really understand what there saying at all. Because i don’t think that there is a need to understand most of it. I like the idea of not knowing what the fuck is going on, or knowing what the fuck the conclusion is. Who cares about having a conclusion. Who needs answers, and how can a movie give me answers.

This is a great movie and i am going to go see it again. But i say that now, but i will wait for the dvd. rock.

Four friends/fledgling entrepreneurs, knowing that there’s something bigger and more innovative than the different error-checking devices they’ve built, wrestle over their new invention.
