Primer, 2004. Debut by a 31-year old engineer, Shane Carruth (playing Aaron). The wikipedia article about the film, and imdb page. Two friends, engineers journey through the process of small company, invention and the consequences. Twisted and recursive plot, with lots of cues spread on different shots and dialogs. Complicated and twisted story line. Difficult to understand all the connections and loose ends after single viewing. Many explanations on the internet. Very good movie for those more engineering/math oriented people – Ula went to sleep after 15min. The existential and moral aspects might have been pushed deeper in the film.
