Director: Shane Carruth
Stars: Shane Carruth, David Sullivan, Casey Gooden, Anand Upadhyaya
Indie Cred: Won the grand jury dramatic award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival and cost - no joke - just $7,000
Why it's worth your while: One of the more overrated and now underrated Sundance grand jury prize winners, "Primer" is an impressive dramatic achievement that still holds up today. Using first-time actors, Carruth creates a believable time travel storyline that is almost too smart for its own good, but is inherently watchable.
