Uh?

It’s an easy lazy comparison to make, but when I saw Donnie Darko at the cinema, myself and my mates spent the subsequent 15 minute walk to the pub, and probably a lot of the afternoon, trying to get the paradoxes straight in our head. We knew it was a great film – just that we weren’t quite sure what had happened.

Well, as I said, its such an obvious comparison that Primer wears it on the box, but holy shit, I finished this film feeling exactly the same way I did with DD, only tenfold.

Its very much an arthouse sci-fi. Its not flash, its not showy, its superbly written and acted. And I think you’ll need to watch it multiple times to try and get it straight in your head. Bloody hell – its good. Go rent it.

Yesterday.

  • OK, I saw Donnie Darko and I hate to say, I didn’t get it. I enjoy independent movies, dark movies, blah blah blah, anything labeled “arthouse” is for me. But I didn’t get DD. I will check out “Primer” and put it on my Netflix. I like your NYC photos too, by the way.
