"Primer", directed by Shane Carruth

Movie, 2004

Perplexing film in which a group of nerds spend a load of time building stuff in one of their garages. The most notable piece of stuff is a time machine, which is kept in a storage facility, where things go a bit wrong with doubles inadvertently created and all manner of gloomy consequences ensue. The problem with the film is that the whole thing seems to have been improvised on no budget and all the action carried out with one hand over the mouth; nothing, ever, is clear or straightforward. Some lovely atmosphere and a stark authenticity, but a devil to try and follow.
