In yesterday’s blog post “9 Low Budget Science Fiction Films More People Should See” , I mentioned that a diagram existed to help explain the plot of Primer.
While part of the fun of the film is the experience of thinking “If he’s there, then who’s done that…? Hang on… Where did they come from…? Is that…? OH JESUS. A PIECE OF MY BRAIN HAS FALLEN OUT OF MY NOSE.”, it’s also nice to know what the hell is going on.
It goes without saying that the link contains MASSIVE SPOILERS.
If you need to brush up with the time travel theory contained within the film’s universe, you can have a look at this handy flow chart.
Hope that helps!
Before I go, just a quick word to say I’ve set up a mailing list thing in the top right hand corner if you want to sign up for more stuff like this.
