Timecrimes (2007) and Primer (2004)

This is the one you've been waiting for! Elise Moore and David Fiore tackle two of the preeminent weisentimer puzzle films in the chrono canon (note: one of these puzzles comes complete with missing pieces). 

First up is Nacho Vigolando's Timecrimes (2007), featuring Karra Elejalde, Barbara Goenaga (tellingly cast-listed as "La Chica en el Bosque" - although we were just calling her The Cyclist), and the director himself. 

Then, we do our best to enter the Primer (2004) fray - battling the film, each other, and the whole internet in an effort to come up with something useful to say about director/star Shane Carruth's work of engineer outsider art.

And if you're keeping score at home, please help yourselves to these fine aids to reflection upon the movie:

1. THE chart

2.  Jason Gendler's "Primer: The Perils and Paradoxes of Restricted Time Travel 

Narration." 

Enjoy! (And keep your eyes peeled for a more in-depth Elise essay on the FB page).

The Elements of Time Travel - A Look Back

This episode, Elise Moore and David Fiore try to stop time and pause to reflect upon what has come before. We explore a few scientific theories regarding the possibility of time travel (from a lay perspective, of course), and then wade into the narratological uses of time in the movies we've watched with you. We hope former fellow Torontonian Northrup Frye would be proud of our efforts to anatomize anachronicity.
