YMMV / Primer

  • Cult Classic: Primer has managed to amass a devoted fan base over the years after its release.
  • Mind Screw: You don't even know the half of it, after all, it got the point where the film needed graphs to explain what's happening.
  • Vanity Project: Shane Carruth (who plays one of the lead characters named Aaron) wrote, directed, produced, edited and composed the music for this film. However unlike most Vanity Projects, it has managed to earn good reviews and win two awards. (And he only acted in the movie after being unable to find anyone who could "break... the habit of filling each line with so much drama.")
