If you’ve ever seen Shane Carruth’s 2004 sci fi mindfuck Primer, about two scientists who build a time machine in their garage, then you’ve no doubt spent some portion of your time, immediately following the movie, trying to figure out its labyrinthine plot.
I’ve seen the movie a few times, have pondered its timeline several times, but it wasn’t until stumbling onto this visual representation of that timeline that the movie absolutely clicked. I now have a good reason to revisit this awesome little movie.
If you’ve never seen the movie, the rent it, read the timeline, and then watch it again. Or just move along, as I realize that looking at the timeline might be a bit daunting.
Nothing more to see here.
