In 2004, Shane Carruth made one of my favorite movies... "PRIMER". It was created for $7000, so it's not surprising that most people have never seen it. It's one of the best takes on time travel that you'll ever see. If you are at all interested in clever, independent, science fiction, you should give it a watch.
Sadly, I figured it was his only film. I guess I couldn't complain because most of us never get the chance to release any spectacular art, so if he did nothing else, he'd still have one up on 99% of the population.
I was wrong. There's a trailer out for his new film "UPSTREAM COLOR". It's gloriously confusing and indefinably unsettling, which is another way of saying that it looks fantastic.
PS - Shane Carruth is also selling DRM free copies of "PRIMER" on his website. If you dig it, support an independent artist and buy it.http://www.shanecarruth.com
