Primer (USA 2003)

Primer.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): Four friends/fledgling entrepreneurs, knowing that there’s something bigger and more innovative than the different error-checking devices they’ve built, wrestle over their new invention.

OK, I admit it. Even after reading the Wikipedia page for the movie, I still have trouble figuring it all out. So what? It’s an amazing low-budget movie that cost $7000 to make, but made $424,760 worldwide! How about that for a first-time directory payoff? It’s an amazing piece of film for the money – that’s for sure. I’ve seen it 4 times, and it still amazes me.

I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal (USA 2007)

Picture 2.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): A documentary on the Austrian-Jewish architectural engineer who became a Nazi hunter after surviving the Holocaust.

Despite the dire subject matter – one of the most inspiring documentaries I’ve seen. What an amazing man. I’m not sure what happened, but it was a very small release (9 theaters). As so often, great reviews, made not a lot of money $204,167 since it release.
