"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
"You won't see me."

Just got back from seeing Primer at Ritz East. Good movie, very engaging. Follows the recursive misadventures of a couple garage engineers. Probably the best time-travel-oriented movie I've seen, just about ever.

It was all very understated, and while I figured out the gimmick as soon as they started it on it, it was still pretty great to watch. The acting started off slightly shaky but was something you could easily warm to.

I realize this was the last show of the day, but it was rather saddening that there were less than a dozen people in the house. One of whom looked like an old hit man. He looked like fucking Michael Madsen.

Anyway, the movie is recommended. And it's nice to see something come out with a Sundance award attached to it that isn't about gay cowboys eating pudding.

No such thing as too much South Park.
