Primer (5 Apr 05)

#1 Post by alan smithee » 22 Jan 2005, 16:36

from here:
New Line Home Entertainment will release the Shane Carruth & David Sullivan film Primer on April 5th. This disc will be presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, along with an English Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track. The only extras to be included are two audio commentaries (the first with writer/director Shane Carruth; the second with Carruth and the cast/crew).
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Not that anyone likely cares (other than me) but this looks to be finally getting a UK release in February (according to LOVEFiLM).
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

Commentary should be interesting. I'm worried that the movie will suffer on rewatching, but it seems like it could survive well.

I just want to say that the commetary adds quite a bit to the movie. Since I did not quite understand all of the scientific stuff involved, it was really nice to hear what the director had to say. I really enjoyed it.
Jake will be here until I feel more creative again.

Just figured this should also go here... The link looks fantastic (I had to refresh about 8 times before the entire picture loaded) I've only glanced at it, but it seems like a great timeline and I want to try to print it out to read fully... Maybe I'll pick up the DVD soon to fully use the timeline and get the movie more.

After watching the movie, i rewatched it two more times that same week and really got a hold of what was happening. The purpose of the movie is to explore, in as realistic a way as possible, the many complications that may arise when dealing with time travel. Therefore, the story involves several different timelines, which arent even told in chronological order (if that makes any sense). The story is actually quite cleverly constructed and if you have the time and inclination, i recommend checking out the following website:

If you wake up at a different time in a different place could you wake up as a different person?
