Smartest movie ever. You might not understand what's happening, but the more you read about it and re-watch it, the better it gets. And even when you don't understand, the unique and natural dialog keeps you interested.

It's incredible how one person wrote and directed this on such a tiny budget....and for it to be one of the most cohesive realistic feeling time travel films. I love how this movie doesn't patronize the viewer (a very rare feeling these days). Primer respects the intelligence of the viewer and rewards you if you are paying attention.
