    Which parts did you think were important that turned out to apparently not be?

    What the hell happened to the other two guys that were working on the project? They were working 80 hours a week on that levitate-o-tron and then, BAM, they fade out of the movie. One of them was supposed to be really inquisitive, too.

    I'll bet there was a lot more to that in the original script, but it ended up on the cutting room floor for one reason or another. It was kind of weird.

    I think there was a throwaway line about how the garage had to be fumigated or something, and Abe and Aaron just acted like they weren't working on anything and made each other promise not to tell the other two guys.

    Yeah they pretty much establish that they aren't on the same page as the other guys, they're already grating at their idea for a direction of work. So when they find out they've discovered a time machine they go out of their way to keep the other two out of the loop.

    I can't remember exactly what confused me that wasn't on that timeline... but then that's why I'm watching it again.

    I understood that movie on the first viewing.

    Bow before me and kiss my feet for I am your superior.

    Also, I understood Donnie Darko more than most.


    Primer kicks ass BTW.

    Great!

    Explain it

    Which one? Primer or Donnie Darko?

    Primer


    All of it.

    I hope playing the Joker didn't have anything to do with this... I mean, I hope he wasn't driven to kill himself because of the role in some way. He was clearly taking the part pretty goddamned seriously.

    Why so serious?

    I don't think it'll matter to you since you can't read it anyway. :P

    My main question after watching the film isn't one about time, but about motive:

    I saw this film based entirely on the recommendation of this thread, so thanks OP.

    Great movie. So well made in fact, I'm stunned it was filmed on so small a budget.

    As for the plot itself, I'm not even gonna pretend I understood it to the point of that timeline linked in the wiki, but I understood it enough to get enjoyment out of it. Plus, I watched it two times in a row back to back. I can't even remember the last time a movie made me want to do that.

    So far, all I know is that Abe and Arron really, really destroyed their own lives.

    You're pretty good at being a douche. I solute you.

    Anyways...

    Primer is a very good movie. Even when you have no idea what's going on, it's still fun to watch. I watched it two or three times before I gave up and just read the Wiki entry and the official forums to get it all figured out, and there's absolutely no way, if these explanations are accurate, that anyone with an IQ under 200 could figure it out.

    It is validating, really.

    I really think my favorite part of the movie was the very beginning. It reminded me of when I was a little kid helping out some of my family friends who were engineers. Which makes sense, I suppose, since the writer is an engineer.

    I'm sorry, but I really don't see what can be explained that hasn't already been explained. I don't really appreciate being called a douche, which I'm not, and I don't like that I got a weird private message from "No More Mr. Nice Guy" (Who is now banned. Probably not related.) that contained the letters "nt" (Whatever that means) with the title "douche". Actually, it just left me confused. The message that is. Not the movie.

    Sorry to bring this thread back from it's week long deadness, but I just watched Primer and oh god.

    So good.

    The only part I'm still confused about after reading the wiki timelines are
    Spoiler:

    edit: There's some things you can explain Jasoco, if you've even seen the movie. (Because honestly, going into a discussion going 'OMG I R SMRT I KNO STORY FULLY' and then beating around the bush doesn't contribute much to the actual thread)

    The handwriting thing is never explained, but just consider it a sign that there is some sort of adverse neurological effect to using the box.
