Saw Primer last weekend. Finally, a real hacker movie. Primer is fast-paced and suspensful with an “indie” feel. Most SciFi movies now-a-days are really just Action movies. Not Primer. Instead of special effects, there’s deep technical jargon. Instead of Virtual Reality, there’s a digital readout from RadioShack.

Primer is reminiscent of Pi and Memento. It reminds me of something else that I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s not quite David Lynch and it’s not quite Philip K. Dick (except maybe Ubik). Whatever it is, it’s certainly good SciFi.

If you’re looking for bisexual Macedonians or witty hobos, though, you’ll likely be disappointed. Or not.
