Lowdown: Shane Carruth's "Primer" is a marvel, smart science fiction without compromise. It has been way too long since that film made its premiere, and it sounds like Carruth feels the same way. He's already set up his own distribution system for the movie, and this is just the first stop in a roll-out that will make the film widely available by May. I'm dying to see what is being described as a very emotional narrative experiment, and I have my fingers crossed that the wait has been worth it for both filmmaker and audience.
